Roosimine is an Estonian inlay technique that creates the appearance of  embroidery through intentional floats in contrasting yarn on the right side  of your knitting. It’s the perfect technique to add some embellishment to  your knitting that is easier than intarsia. The name Roosimine translates  to “decorating with roses”, which comes from a style of short stitch  embroidery done on the Estonian island of Muhu. Students will knit a small  swatch in the round. 

SKILL LEVEL: advanced beginner /  intermediate knitter; students should be  comfortable to knit and purl in the round,  cast-on, bind -off 

LENGTH: 3 hours in person 

HOMEWORK: Students will be given  instructions to have their swatch cast-on to  continue knitting in the workshop
