Knitworthy 4
The collection features 8 patterns intended to make good gifts for everyone on your knitworthy list (because life’s too short to knit for anyone who doesn’t love what you make).

Mīlēt
Stranded colourwork mittens with foldover cuffs featuring stitch patterns inspired by colourwork traditions from Norway, Estonia and Latvia. Ribbing is worked on the inside of the cuffs for a snug fit that will keep cold winds, or snow, out. The thumbs are worked using the method traditionally found on Selbu mittens from Norway, a relatively small gusset is worked and similar numbers of stitches are put on hold and cast on to bridge the gap before continuing the hand. The tops are completed with rounded shaping in a star or snowflake design inspired by the tops of Fair Isle tams. A miniature version is worked on the thumbs. This shaping means that the only real difference in the hands is the way the patterns line up—if you’re in a hurry they’ll be perfectly comfortable on the “wrong” hand. The repetitive lice pattern used for the majority of the mittens is easy to keep track of without paying attention to the chart so they work up relatively quickly.
