The Big Book of Latvian Mittens: 100 Knitting patterns for colourful Latvian mittens

Author: Ieva Ozolina

Author Ieva Ozolina has designed 33 new patterns for traditional Latvian mittens and gloves. This collection of stranded colourwork knitting patterns features these all new designs with additional patterns that were previously published in her books: Knit Like a Latvian and Knit Like a Latvian Accessories, in order to create this bumper edition of knitting patterns.

Traditionally, knitting in Latvia has been very important with children being taught how to knit from an early age at school. Brides were expected to gift hand knitted mittens to guests at their wedding and the designs and colours used in Latvian mitten knitting are steeped in tradition and folklore.

The traditional pointed design of Latvian mittens is very distinctive, along with the beautiful Latvian braid which is often featured in Latvian knitting designs, particularly around the cuff of mittens.

The collection features 100 different patterns with large colour charts for each design so you can easily follow even the most elaborate patterns. There are instructions for the basic mitten, glove and fingerless glove patterns as well as step-by-step instructions and artworks for techniques such as forming the thumb, Latvian braids and other cuff finishing techniques including fringing and notches.

All of the designs are made using stranded colorwork techniques and the same tools and materials - 2 ply 100% wool and double pointed needles - so it's perfect for using up scraps of colourful yarn you have in your stash.

This bumper collection of Latvian mittens, gloves, fingerless mittens and more will be the perfect reference for mitten knitters, providing inspiration and support so you can create beautiful gifts for friends and family.

Ieva Ozolina is the owner of the brand Hobbywool in Latvia. She sells knitting patterns and kits for Latvian mittens and socks and travels widely promoting her business.
