Muhu handicraft may truly be considered one of the brightest chapters in the great treasury of Estonian folk art. At all times there have been maidens and women on this small plot of land, overgrown with junipers, who have knitted incredibly fine-textured mittens and socks; they have been fond of wild color combinations, embroidered floral beauty and rather sharp-tongued humor.
This book introduces the essential principles of making and wearing Muhu traditional costumes, ornaments and textiles. It contains valuable instructions and a wealth of patterns for knitting, crochet and embroidery.
