The Kureparved Mitts feature a distinctive small triangular lace motifs, arranged in the shape of flocks of migrating cranes in early spring or autumn. That is the perfect time for wearing fingerless mitts, having a walk in a park and spotting the birds. The title Kureparved is Estonian and means flocks of cranes. Every spring thousands of cranes migrate to Estonia for nesting. Such wonderful majestic birds!

The space between motifs is worked in 1x1 twisted rib (just knit stitches are twisted). Length and width of the mitts are adjustable. Two slightly modified versions of the lace pattern are given with separate charts for the right and the left hand; pick the version you like most.

A natural fiber (merino, alpaca, lamb’s wool, etc.) yarn should be used to knit up the mitts, which will keep it’s shape without stretching out. Sample was knitted in Drops Baby Alpaca Silk.
