The unique motif of Finn-ish is based on a folk knitting technique from Rovaniemi, Finland.

This is truly a different approach to colorwork with elements of weaving, stranded knitting, and intarsia. You may have read about the technique on Yarn Harlot's blog, or perhaps you've experienced it first hand in Susanna Hansson's Lapland Hand Garments class.

The Finn-ish pattern has detailed instructions on how to prepare 11 small butterflies of contrasting color and how to work the motif. Most importantly, there are instructions on how to manage the butterflies so you have a tangle free knitting experience.
