Knitted Kalevala by Jenna Kostet is a beautiful collection of designs which just might have it all: colorwork, stunning photography, and stories told through stitches. The designs are inspired by Kalevala which is a national epic in Finland and contains old poems full of Baltic-Finnic mythology, ancient symbols, mythical creatures, and nature. These as well as other Finnish, Scandinavian, and Baltic influences can be seen in the decorative colorwork patterns of the designs. 

All of the designs are knitted in one piece and the colorwork only uses two colors 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.
