Please welcome a fine work of handicraft art, where traditional Estonian knitting style is combined with Seto patterns. And this is not an ordinary pattern, but it has travelled to Siberia with expatriates from Seto area in South-East Estonia and back to home-land with folklorist, who were researching them few years ago.
A copy of this pair is currently on an exhibition called “Siberian Seto Floral Patterns” (please see more info HERE).
Tightly knitted using 0-size needles and DK weight yarn. The color yarns are hand dyed, 100% Estonian wool. The off-white is natural sheep color. They are perfect to block wind and wear in winter. The cuff is nicely spiral.
The gloves are colorworked all the way to the fingertips, which makes them warmer than average thin one-layer gloves. The yarn being rather thin makes them very comfortable to wear and they fit like a second skin.
