Knit in the round, Wolastoq Mittens are warm, stranded colourwork mittens, worked with a ribbed cuff lining, a braided trim and a comfortable thumb gore using worsted weight wool. Wolastoq (pronounced “woolastook”) is a word used by the Maliseet First Nations people which means beautiful river. The eagle, fish and traditional Salish motifs combine to make striking mittens with a nod to Canada’s own knitting tradition.
This pattern has been test knit and professionally tech edited.
Knitters should be familiar with knitting in the round, stranded knitting and reading charts.
