Latvian Wristers with Beth Brown-Reinsel
Using wristers as a template, learn beautiful Latvian mitten cuff techniques that can be applied to socks, hats, sweaters, and gloves. We will cover a scalloped cuff, a herringbone braid, a variation of the half-braid, traditional motifs in the main part of the wrister, and a picot hem. We'll cover three ways to manage two yarns in a round and discuss yarn dominance.
