Book Description

Deepen your knowledge of lace knitting with 14 Estonian, heirloom quality lace patterns from Nancy Bush in a new edition of her bestselling book Knitted Lace of Estonia.

Now with a bonus 1-hour DVD, "Knitted Lace of Estonia" will teach you about traditional lace-knitting techniques, such as:

  • Traditional twig, peacock, and lily of the valley patterns and their variations
  • Different ways to make the distinctive nupp, or subdued bobble
  • Modern adaptations of the classic ways of constructing shawls and scarves and adding lace edges
On the new bonus DVD, Nancy explores the knitting traditions of Estonia, as well as offers in-depth instructions for the book's patterns and techniques, as well as designing an Estonian-style shawl, stole or scarf from beginning to end.
