Mostly Mittens: Ethnic Knitting Designs from Russia
Synopses & Reviews

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.
