Christmas gift along - S e p t e m b e r

Surprise, surprise, the September Christmas gift is - a pair of mittens!


I was inspired by a KAL on Ravelry to pick up my Latvian mittens book by Lizbeth Upitis.




I used Finullgarn from my stash, and chose graph 116 from the book. I got gauge 30 - so I omitted part of the cuff pattern, and one repeat of the main pattern. Cast on 54 sts for the cuff, increased to 64 sts for the hand. Thumb opening after 4 cm of palm pattern. Felt a little bit like I was cheating, other people in the KAL are working at the traditional Latvian gauge of 40 sts per 10 cm.

Utrolig lekre votter, fargene er så fine sammen! Blir veldig inspirert til vottestrikk av bloggen din! :)

Ha en fin helg! :)
