Product Details

Lizbeth Upitis is truly a master knitter, this book of extraordinarily beautiful traditional Latvian mittens, with full-color photographs of 92 mittens and 125 grids. Includes instructions for five specific mittens. Its detailed technical instructions and drawings allow us to reproduce the esoteric molded bangs, scalloped cuffs, Latvian braid and other techniques specific to these classic designs.

Instructions are provided for the following mittens: 

  • A child's mitt from Latgale, with mounted fringe.
  • A medium-sized women's mitt with a scalloped bottom edge, from Kurzeme.
  • A medium sized mitt from Latgale with numerous braid bands around the wrist.
  • A men's mitt from Vidzeme with a fringed bottom edge.
  • And a fully lined women's mitt from Zemgale.

The importance of mittens in Latvian culture is profound, and the historical details of the importance of mittens in wedding rites, along with the knitting songs (daina) provided by the author, are both fascinating and touching. Hardcover. In English and French.

178 patterns included in the book can be viewed on Ravelry
