Mostly Mittens: Ethnic Knitting Designs from Russia

Mostly Mittens: Ethnic Knitting Designs from Russia Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Developed by Russia's Komi people, these patterns were originally passed down visually from knit pieces, so they're easy to understand and knit. They only look complex! This updated version of Charlene Schurch's previous collection includes her original designs plus new versions of several mittens.
  • Mittens are knit in the round and include a thumb gore for excellent fit
  • Collection features patterns for 35 pairs of mittens plus four traditional hats
  • Projects use stranded color work and include easy-to-follow color-coded charts

Synopsis:

An exploration of the rich knitting traditions of the Komi people, an ethnic minority living in the northeast of European Russia. Here are complete instructions for 36 mittens, two socks, and two hats, accompanied by necessary charts and patterns. 70 color photos. 15 b&w illustrations.

Synopsis:

Ethnic knitting is one way to expand your design repertoire while touching on the past, and each of these 42 patterns is based on the rich knitting tradition of Russia's Komi people. There are complete instructions and charts for 36 mittens, two socks, and two hats.
