Book Description

Developed by Russia's Komi people, these patterns were originally passed down visually from knit pieces, so they're easy to understand and knit. They only look complex! This updated version of Charlene Schurch's previous collection includes her original designs plus new versions of several mittens.

  • Mittens are knit in the round and include a thumb gore for excellent fit
  • Collection features patterns for 35 pairs of mittens plus four traditional hats
  • Projects use stranded color work and include easy-to-follow color-coded charts

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous Mittens 22 April 2010
By L. Thompson VINE VOICE
This book is lovely, I don't know if I'll make more than one or two of the designs. It's filled with stunning images. For choice, inspiration and clear directions on how to knit beautiful colourwork mittens, this book can't be beat! It's a winner. If you want knit mittens, whatever weight of yarn you choose, you can customise the patterns to suit the stitch count of your knitting, no need to adapt the way you knit to someone elses 'tension'.

Excellent. A new knitting dimension to explore. Helpful advice for those who don't like working with four needles included.

3.0 out of 5 stars Intermediate to Experienced Knitters Only 28 May 2010
By Barbara Rhoades TOP 1000 REVIEWER
18 pages of basics begin this book. This section also includes a bit of history on the Komi people. These are Russian people that lived near the Ural Mountains.

There are 35 mitten patterns and four cap patterns. Each project shows a color photo of the mitten, a bit about the mitten and the skill level, along with the sizes. The patterns were listed as intermediate and experienced skill levels so if you are a beginner, I would avoid this book. Yarn type and needles needed are listed next. The gauge is also listed so you can be sure the size will come out correctly.

Each project is worked with a chart. Hopefully, you will know how to work with charts but if not, there is a 2 page section that describes how to do this. There is a short bio about the author at the back of the book.
