    Knitted Kalevala

    Knitted Kalevala includes 18 knitting patterns inspired by Kalevala. All of the designs are knitted in one piece. The colour work only uses two colours at the same time, making them accessible to all levels of knitters.

    Knitted Kalevala by Jenna Kostet includes 18 knitting patterns – sweaters, cardigans and accessories – inspired by Kalevala. Considered a national epic in Finland, Kalevala contains old poems full of Baltic-Finnic mythology, ancient symbols, mythical creatures and nature. These as well as other Finnish, Karelian, Scandinavian and Baltic influences can be seen in the decorative colour work patterns of the designs. They are also a wonderful alternative to the popular Icelandic sweaters.

    All of the designs are knitted in one piece and the colour work only uses two colours at the same time, making them accessible to all levels of knitters. The patterns use a variety of lighter and heavier yarns and include several options for suitable yarns.
