Estonia is famous for its beautifully knitted lace shawls from the Haapsalu region. The paper-thin square shawls consist of several panels with different patterns. Estonian knitted lace has a number of specific characteristics, among which the ‘nupp’, a three-dimensional element that emphasises the lines of the lace. Also, many lace patterns are inspired on flowers.
During the class Estonian Knitting Techniques you will learn several ways of casting on. We will try some of the specific knitting techniques in which horizontal plaits are made in one or more colours.
The classes are given in Dutch but it is often possible for English-speaking knitters to participate in the class. Please, consult The Dutch Knitters in advance.
