The author finishes the book with a fully stocked section on mitten knitting techniques, complete with detailed illustrations and all the tips you’ll ever need to make the perfect pair of mittens. A guide to the meanings behind some of the more commonly used symbols gives you a starting point for coming up with your own colorful patterns – but the book also includes plenty of stunning designs conveniently charted out for you.

All of the mittens in Knit Like A Latvian were made from 2-ply 100% wool, such as our Victorian 2-Ply Wool Yarn. Ozolina also states that double pointed needles, specifically super skinny metal ones, are a must for this type of project. Don’t worry! We have those, too:
