Small, all-over repeating geometric patterns are the oldest knitting designs found in Lithuania. Squares, stripes, zigzags, chevrons, diagonals, diamonds, lattices, and crosses are all well represented.
Some of the designs, especially when used in particular combinations and in certain colors, are uniquely Lithuanian, while other patterns are ubiquitous, found wherever stranded color knitting is made. Although many designs may seem to be arbitrary or purely abstract, the shapes actually have meaning in the context of Lithuanian folk art dating back to the Stone Age.
I hope you’ll join me in my quest to make beautiful designs.
