Aleks Byrd is a knitwear designer and illustrator who is particularly well-known as a moderniser of Estonian knitting traditions. With a heritage tied to three countries – USA, Estonia and Canada – she has plenty of inspiration running through her, but tends to play with her Estonian roots in particular. She gives her knits a distinctive graphic touch and creatively applies the traditional Estonian knitting techniques putting a fresh twist on them for wearable designs. Aleks’ aim is to get knitters to try out new techniques in her collection of patterns, her book Traditions Revisited - Modern Estonian Knits and popular workshops. It’s her design background in illustration coupled with her unique ideas and love of colour that shine through in her collection of designs that are fun and rewarding to knit for all levels of knitters.
