Knitted Lace of Estonia is a beautifully illustrated book that showcases traditional Estonian knitted lace patterns and techniques.

The book is divided into three parts: the first part covers the history of the tradition, the second part provides directions for making several projects, and the third part is a stitch dictionary for designing one's own projects.
With 14 projects and numerous knitting stitch charts, the book features lace shawls and scarves that are typical of Estonian lace knitting. These patterns range from introductory (such as the Raha scarf) to advanced, and are stunning and delicate. The shawls, in particular, would make exquisite wedding wraps or special gifts.
The book is very easy to understand, and with the inclusion of the DVD, it's almost like attending a class. I would recommend the book to anyone wishing to learn this lovely lace knitting craft or those who want to improve and tidy up their skills.
this is an excellent resource for anyone interested in Estonian knitting tradition, lace work, or making a special shawl or wrap
