Adding color to your knitwear is so much fun – try something different! Roositud is an Estonian inlay technique in which groups of stitches are wrapped as you work with a contrasting yarn. The best part of this technique is that you never knit with anything but your main color yarn! Intriguing, isn’t it? Just for this workshop, Irina designed a simple, attractive pair of fingerless mitts. She named them Talvel Mitts; the word ‘talvel’ means ‘winter’ in Estonian. The mitts include a stunning Roositud inlay as well as two other techniques frequently used in Baltic knitting: corrugated ribbing and the baltic braid.
You should be familiar with increases (both M1R and M1L) and with knitting in the round. Note that the Magic Loop method may work best for this class.
