ETC Combo - Latvian Mittens (Package)
Latviaâs mittens became so magnificent because of their
importance within the rites of marriage â think of our wedding cakes.
The bride and groom wore a particularly ornate pair during the ceremony,
but mitten importance continued throughout a week of marriage rituals
and celebrations. If the bride married into a large household, she could
need over 100 pairs of presentation mittens to fulfill Latvian wedding
During two mitten immersion days, learn a twisted edge, three variations
of fringe, single and double scallops, and seven braid variations. Also
learn how to place your chosen pattern, explore color combinations, get
your gauge to fit your mittens, then learn thumb and top decrease
techniques. Finally you plan and cast-on your chosen design and
technique combinations for your original Latvian mittens.
All the while, youâre surrounded by over 100 different mittens to
analyze, fondle, and photograph!
Note: Must be comfortable working with 2 colors on dpns or 2 circulars.
