Skaite-Maria created this wonderful pattern about a hundred years ago. She was a Sámi lady from the Northern Sweden, near Tourpon and Jokkmokk. The world knows about her from the research and writing of Erika Pavval in Jokkmokk, Sweden. This historically accurate mitten requires three colors of yarn, with only two used on any row. Out of the Grey is worked with traditional Norwegian yarn in small, geometric designs to form a sturdy, warm, hard-wearing mitten. It sports a short braid at the cuff.
