These mittens are inspired by a pair knit in the town of Telšiai, Lithuania and photographed in Antanas Tamošaitis’s book, Sodžiaus menas, kn. 5: Mezgimo-nerimo raštai (Village Arts, no. 5: Charted Knitting Patterns, Kaunas, Lithuania: Žemes Ukio Rumu leidykla, 1933). I changed the design to have the popular pointed tip shaping that I feel is a better match for the patterning on the hand.
