The Amberwing Socks began as an adventure in to the delightful world of traditional Estonian inlay knitting, known as Roosimine.

This centuries-old technique involves creating both simple and complex designs with strands of yarn, resulting in a unique fabric that resembles embroidery. Of course I wanted to apply this technique to socks, and was smitten with the result! I designed a simple parade of dragonflies floating down the side of the sock - something simple enough that Roosimine beginners could easily learn! The addition of the traditional Latvian braid adds a special touch to the cuff, resulting in a sock that looks quite fancy, but is simple to craft!

The pattern includes full tutorials for both the Latvian Braid and Estonian Inlay! Additionally, links to video tutorials are included so you can watch me demonstrate both techniques!
