#12 Fringed Sun Mittens
This pattern holds your hand as you step into the ocean of Latvian techniques and designs. The shading in this mitten’s cuff plus alternating colored sun symbols in its palm give the appearance of a difficult six-colored mitten. But this traditional Latvian mitten is worked with no more than two colors in a round. Single-colored fringe immediately precedes two-colored braid, so fringe strands pop up inside the braid. 4 pages.
