This kit contains the pattern and all the yarn you’ll need to knit my design Latvian Fingerless Mitts. There are 5 colors of Brown Sheep Co. Nature Spun 100% wool sport weight yarn. These yarns are NOT superwash treated. You will need a set of US size 4 (3.5mm) double-pointed needles to knit the mitts circularly, but you can use the Magic Loop if you prefer. The mitts will fit a medium woman’s hand (7 to 7 1/2″ circumference above thumb).
These fingerless mitts were chosen for the cover of “Knitting Traditions” magazine a few years ago. The scalloped edge, created by a lace panel, is emphasized by two different half-braids. The Herringbone Braid is created at the wrist. A traditional motif is worked in the upper half in your choice of two, three, or four colors. The mitt ends with a picot hem.
