Roositud is an Estonian inlay technique in which a contrasting color is wrapped back and forth between the front and back of the fabric as it is knitted, resulting in a geometric pattern that looks similar to embroidery. The roositud technique allows the knitter freedom to place a motif anywhere and to use as many colors as desired. Three colors are used to create detailed patterning in this beret, and the pattern yarns are doubled for a fuller overall effect. Traditionally, roositud inlay was used only on mittens and stockings, but the technique is worked as a graphic motif on one side of this beret for an up-date on tradition.
