Description

Intro to Roositud

Roositud is a traditional Estonian knitting technique that looks like embroidery. Worked in the round with different colours, it can create richly-patterned gloves, socks, hats. Roositud is a great way to bring colour into your knitting and you only ever knit with the background yarn.

This class will teach you the two steps needed to work Roositud and we will work small samples and discuss ideas for using this technique to personalize your knitting.

Skills needed: knit, purl

Supplies:

Students should bring DK weight yarn and appropriate needles that are:

- 1 plain solid light-coloured ball for the background

- 2 or more small remnants of contrasting yarn for the Roositud
