I hope to see you there!
I spent over a month in Estonia in 2005. The knitting techniques I saw were varied and sophisticated. I was particularly entranced by the method of Roositud, where color is introduced to a garment by the “laying in” of other yarns to create motifs. In this retreat, students will work on a mitten or glove while learning an Estonian cast-on, a choice of cuff motifs, reading Roositud charts and working them correctly.
Level: Intermediate. Must be comfortable with double-pointed needles or working
with two circulars or Magic Loop.
