I made these mittens back in 2008, and put up a very rudimentary chart and description then. I occasionally get asked for better ones, and now I finally got around to fixing them up a bit. The name comes from the mishmash of regional styles, with a Swedish cast on, a Latvian braid and border, and a traditional Scottish Sanquar motif for the main part.

This pattern includes charts for the mittens, and instructions for the twined cast on and Latvian braid. It is done in the European style, and requires some independent thinking.

Big thanks to Kimberley and Alex for testing.
