Knit with Attitude
iKnit7 Hilja Mitts Kit
Aleks named these long wrist warmers after her grandmother who was a masterful knitter. A discovery of a little booklet with motifs she had created and copied from traditional patterns back in 1930s Estonia inspired these embroidered looking wrist warmers. This is a wonderful project introducing you to the Estonian inlay technique called “Roosimine”, with tutorials and videos by the designer to hold you by the hand learning this fascinating technique.
