Kejimkujik (k’gemu-koojik) National Park and Historical Site is located in Nova Scotia, Canada. Named for the largest lake in the park, Kejimkujik preserves ancestral canoe routes, fishing camps and petroglyphs of the Mi’kmaq people. The slipped stitch motif of these mittens reflect many aspects of the park; pointed canoe prows cutting through still water, pine trees on the shores of rippling lakes, and the chevron patterned quillwork of the Mi’kmaq.

The mitten instructions come in two sizes; small (to fit women’s glove size 7) and large (to fit women’s glove size 8). They are slightly roomy, and can be worn either on their own or as an extra layer over thin (laceweight or commercial) knit gloves. The top cuff of the mitten should be long enough to nearly cover the tips of the fingers, and can be folded down when dexterity is needed. This cuff can be shortened if the hand length is not desired.

This is a WRITTEN pattern. The slipped stitch motif is both charted and written. The pattern requires some skill in reading your knitting, as the motif is placed within the pattern instructions but written out separately with different row counts.
