Description

Folk Mittens offers mitten patterns from around the world, presented in full-color graphs. An introduction to folk knitting is followed by a generous section on the techniques of knitting mittens. Among topics covered are gauge, wool selection (including techniques for washing and felting wool), casting on, plait edging, ribbed and unribbed cuffs, and a long section on the ever-elusive thumb. The author also provides techniques for hand-knit mitten cords, finishing and sizing.
