From the pattern:
The fine detail and absence of a rhythm in the lettered pattern make this a challenging project, best for knitters with experience in multicolored knitting. You’ll also need to know how to graft stitches together for a neat finish at the tip of the mitten.
Issue also includes an article, “Unraveling Poetry Mittens,” by Veronica Patterson, on the history of poetry mittens.
