Embellished Colourwork Knitting

  • A Yarn Story 128 Walcot Street Bath BA1 5BG United Kingdom (map)

Add an extra detail and skill to your next knitting project by learning a few unique and colourful Estonian techniques. Roositud is an Estonian inlay technique to create the appearance of embroidery by creating a motif from contrasting coloured floats on the right side of your knitting. Estonian knitting features many different types of braids. Braids add a bit of texture, height and interest to any cuff or hem. Knitters will knit sampler wristlets.

Skill Level: Intermediates; knowledge and previous stranded colourwork experience

Materials: 2 colours of DK weight yarn preferably non-superwash yarn and corresponding needle size (suggested 4mm) to knit in the round ( DPNS or circular needles for magic loop)
