PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

For several centuries in Latvia mittens were the main form of gift and endowed with magical significance. Nowadays Latvian mittens, diverse in their colours and patterns are still an essential part of winter clothing.

We found these gorgeous kits at The Knitting and Stitching Show in the Olympia and knew we had to have them on our shelves. Not only are they gorgeous mittens but each motif has a different and beautiful story associated with them.

In each 'Knit like a Latvian' kit, you will find a pattern chart, the yarn to make a pair of size M/L mittens and step by step instructions. Mitten in image shown only to illustrate finished product.

This kit is a perfect gift for all knitters, regardless of their experience.

The kits are handmade in Latvian from Latvian wool. The wool is similar in texture to Shetland yarn and will definitely keep even the most chilly fingers warm, plus the colour work also ensures a double layer so toasty hands are a surety!
