This is an in-person class  

Roosimine (pronounced Roo-si-meen-ie) is a simple modern geometric pattern using overlay embroidery inspired by traditional Roosimine socks from Estonia. Roosimine is a unique but surprisingly simple way to incorporate color into your knitting, and this pattern is perfect for beginners.

Vaheldus is worked using one main color (MC) of sock yarn, and approximately 19 yards each of 2 contrasting colors OR 37 yards of one contrasting color, depending on the version you will be knitting.
Knitters should be familiar with knitting socks, since the Roosimine technique will be the focus of the class. The pattern is designed so that there is a right sock and a left sock, with the pattern facing the outside of the leg. The pattern calls for a heel flap and gusset for the heel.

Skill required:  
Sock knitting experience is important since the focus of instruction will be the Roosimine technique.

Please purchase the pattern, yarn, and needles before the first class. Determine your size and cast on the number of stitches indicated in the pattern. There is a right sock and a left sock, so knitting two socks at the same time is not recommended.
