43 Siskiyou Trail PDF
This pattern was named for the Siskiyou Trail, a Native American trail that wound its way through central California’s valleys up into Oregon. It was used by settlers as the shortest path from San Francisco to northern Oregon. This mitt pattern is reminiscent of that trail as it winds its way up the hand from the wrist to the knuckles in a lacy zigzag. It is knit in the round with a thumb gusset and the pattern gives instructions for five sizes.
