Knitted Kalevala II follows Jenna Kostet’s first knitting book, an international bestseller published in 2022. Continuing her journey into the world of mythology, tradition and stories, this sequel promises to captivate knitters and folklore enthusiasts alike.

This book contains 20 colourwork patterns inspired by poems from the Kalevala, considered a national epic in Finland. From sweaters and cardigans to cosy accessories, this collection offers various designs showcasing various shapes and constructions. The poems' stories come to life in colourwork featured at the yoke, hem or sleeves — all worked using only two colours at a time. 

“Most knitters would agree that crafting increases your happiness. Even if we aren’t rune singers, we are still part of an endless chain of tradition.” – Jenna Kostet.

The Kalevala is the result of Elias Lönnrot compiling, collecting, arranging and adapting folk poetry and writing some lines himself. The first version, the “Old Kalevala” was published in 1835.
The first Knitted Kalevala examined fifteen different poems from the Kalevala, alongside knitting patterns based on them. For this book, nineteen poems were selected for designs and background notes.
In both books, the debut book and this sequel, Jenna Kostet examines the Kalevala through colourwork knitting.

"This book is a continuation of my journey into the world of mythology, tradition and stories. It is my hope that you the reader will spend many a memorable moment with it and, accompanied by the clicking of needles, will become part of the age-old chain of knitters and those who embrace tradition."
