Haapsalu, a small resort town on the west coast of Estonia, is famous for its 13th-century castle ruins, curative mud baths, and the legend of the White Lady. About the same amount of recognition has been brought to Haapsalu by its hand-knit lacy scarves and shawls. The skill has been handed down from mother to daughter, from one master knitter to another for one and half centuries.
“The Haapsalu Shawl” contains:
*the history of Estonian lace knitting
*clear instructions for knitting the shawls
*more than 100 beautiful lace patterns
