Spring Latvian Mitts
The design for these Latvian Finglerless Mitts was inspired by the book Latviesu Rakstainie Cimdi by Mirzda Slava, and contains several traditional techniques and motifs: the scalloped cuff, the Split Herringbone Braid, the afterthought thumb-hole, the purl ridges, a picot hem at the top, and classic Latvian motifs.
You can make a larger size by using worsted weight and size 6 dpn.
You only need 80 yards for the white yarn, and 40 yards of each of the other colors.
