Estonian Inlay & Estonian Braids – Tanis Gray

Learn the art of Estonian Inlay, or Roosimine in this hat workshop! Originating from the western Estonian island Muhu, this stranding technique has been used for centuries to embellish knitting. Sharing similar characteristics of stranded colourwork, intarsia, and embroidery, this beautiful technique adds texture and colour to your knits. You’ll have the option to make a 2-coloured hat, or a 3-coloured hat with 2-coloured Estonian Braids. We will also cover twisted ribbing, blocking and finishing techniques, and knit the A Short Reprise pattern!
