Why can't we see the world through stories? Why can't a sweater be a garment and a story at the same time? How would I combine two things I love: storytelling and crafts? And that's what Jenna has set out to do, with the goal of knitting the poems of the Kalevala. And there are enough of these, 50 pcs. Here is one of them.

Instructions for Jenna K's Metsänpeitto sweater in Finnish and in print.

Jenna has skillfully combined elements of folklore and stories with the knitting instructions. They show Finnish nature, ancient symbols and religious creatures, mythical stories and narratives.

The Finnish folklore tradition includes the concept of being with a forest beneath, which is a mythical space that captures one's mind while wandering in the forest. If your forest covers you, you are completely lost and no one will find you. The belief was that by turning your coat inside out and looking back between your legs, some of the people covered in the forest would return and some would disappear forever.
Metsänpeitto is a sweater with two colors, a spruce branch on the hem and cuffs. The pattern does not require long runs of yarn, and they are easy enough even for an inexperienced knitter. Make sure you choose colors with enough contrast to make the pattern stand out. The sweater is knitted from the bottom up, and the sleeves are knitted separately and joined to the body before knitting the rib.
