Description
Robin Hansen is widely credited for inspiring the current interest in roots knitting patterns for mittens. Filled with a wide array of classic knitting patterns, this book is, in essence, the ultimate mitten book. The patterns range from simple to difficult and come from such diverse origins as traditional Scandinavian and Canadian Maritime patterns, Polish twined mittens, colorful Afghan gloves, and more contemporary sewn and windblock patterns from the state of Maine. Robin didn't invent any of the patterns in this book: Some were found, some were lost in time or place and found again, some were recreated from photos or old directions. As with all traditions, these patterns have been updated, modified, or adapted for modern sensibilities. Knittersof all skill levels will find something here to their liking. Rounding out the patterns is useful information on caring for and repairing woolens; tips for adding details, such as buttons, straps, or leather palms to mittens; and a list of yarn suppliers--,Provided by publisher.
