The kit includes 5 colors of Brown Sheep Co. Nature Spun 100% wool sport weight for a medium (large) woman’s hand:
Medium woman’s hand (7-7 1/4″ circumference above thumb)
Large woman’s hand (7 1/2- 7 3/4″ circumference above the thumb)
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.
While knitting these mitts, you’ll learn some of the methods used by Latvian knitters. The scalloped edge, created by a lace panel, is emphasized by two different colored garter stitch ridges. The Split Herringbone Braid, a variation of the classic Latvian Braid, is created at the wrist. The little flowers can be worked in your choice of three or four colors. The mitt ends with a picot hem.
Care: Handwash and lay flat to dry. These yarns are NOT superwash.
