Add to favourites

Book Description

A collection of 50 patterns for traditional Latvian mittens, fingerless gloves and wrist warmers, made easy for knitters of all abilities. Knitted mittens have played an important part in traditional Latvian culture: knitted mittens were traditionally given out to guests at Latvian weddings and little girls are still taught to knit at school from an early age. The patterns include traditional Latvian design motifs and the text refers to some of the folk traditions surrounding knitted mittens in Latvia. This book offers a contemporary approach to traditional Latvian knitted mittens with variations for fingerless gloves and wrist warmers.These patterns for simpler fingerless gloves and wrist warmers, will make them accessible to even novice knitters.
