This circularly knitted project is the result of my classes in Latvian mitten techniques. The methods used in the cuff can be applied to sleeve cuffs and sock tops as well! In the main part of the hand, you can practice working with two, three, or four colors in a round, if you like. The open hand is finished off with a picot hem, which is seen in some Lativan mitten cuffs. The thumb hole is created using the classic “Afterthought” method used in Latvian mittens. Enjoy!
Featured Techniques: Latvian braids, scalloped cuff, mutliple-color knitting
Size: Women’s Medium (Large)
