Vermont Yarn Club - Lithuanian Folktales 1

A Knitting Project Every Other Month

I know there are a million yarn clubs and subscription boxes out there, but there’s nothing like this! I’m combining art, writing, teaching, patterns, and surprises all in one box. – Designer Donna Druchunas

``But I have plenty of projects to knit.`` Club boxes would make a great gift to a fellow knitting friend.

Welcome to the Folktales in Lithuania Yarn Club

As seen below.

About Lithuanian Designs

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.
