What does knitted folk poetry look like? How can a sweater be both a garment and a story?

 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. 

 
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.
 
Jenna Kostet (@ihtiriekkoknits) is a writer and a knitwear designer known for enchanting patterns, such as the Suolaulu Sweater which has been made by thousands of knitters around the world.  In her knitwear designs, Jenna places importance on the stories, the continuation of traditions and the joy of creativity.
