This roosimine pattern is one that evokes traditional patterns used in socks and gloves. It is worn proudly on the front chest like a shield (‘kilp’) of pride, identity and protection. Do it as a gradient, all in one colour or with three different colours.

This set-in sleeve sweater is knit seamlessly from the top down.
A repeating roosimine motif is worked on the front of the body centred on the chest.
