Thirty five mittens

Maja Karlsson, illustrated by Siri Carlén

Few things can warm you up on a cold day like a cosy pair of wool mittens – and all the better if you’ve made them yourself. Knitting mittens is fun and doesn’t take very long, so once you’ve decided which pair to knit, you’ll soon be wearing beautiful works of art that are bound to receive plenty of admiration!

In this book, knitwear designer and writer Maja Karlsson presents 35 patterns for mittens and wrist warmers (with and without flip tops) ranging from easy to more intricate and from traditional to modern. There are animal and nature motifs, thicker multi-coloured knits and plain lace and thinner plain cable and lace knits.

All the patterns and diagrams are clear and easy to follow and at the end of the book there is a section that describes the techniques that require that little bit extra attention. And to top it all, the projects are all accompanied by beautiful pictures that are guaranteed to inspire you and get your imagination going!
