Modori Hirose has designed a jumper in the roosimine technique, a traditional Estonian inlay technique (roosimine means roses in Estonian). The flower motifs, which look like they are embroidered, are created by passing the yarn between the stitches, as if weaving in yarn when knitting. Midori has arranged them asymmetrically on the front and shoulders like corsages. Their arrangement makes it possible to knit them in a single colour. You can of course use more or less colours as you please.
Each wool kit contains the amount of yarn needed to complete the project in the selected size.
