Baltic Cities Christmas Markets Knitting Tour
Tallinn is one of Europe’s newest capitals and boasts a rich mix of architecture and culture. The Old Town was almost untouched by war and remains perfectly preserved. A fine Christmas tree will be the centrepiece of Old Town Square, where we’ll have some time to explore the Christmas market. We’ll visit the highlights of the city with our local guide, learn about Estonian handicrafts and take part in a workshop with local experts.
Our project is inspired by the beautiful knitted mittens from Latvia and Estonia. Over the course of the trip we will work through the techniques needed to create a colourful slipper sock, perfect for keeping your toes cozy in those chilly winter evenings.
The project is worked in the round from the toe up using magic loop technique. For the foot upper, you will have a choice of traditional stranded knit patterns to work from or can go crazy with the stripes.
We will also look at adding embellishments such as embroidery or surface decoration to give your cozy toes slippers their own personality!
