This stylish and beautifully photographed book contains 27 knitted mitten patterns for women and men. The book is split into seasons, with eight pairs for spring and summer, seven pairs for autumn and twelve pairs of mittens for winter. Using lots of different styles, stitches, patterns and colours, there are lacy, fingerless types for spring, summer and autumn and thicker, enclosed mittens for the winter patterns. From the warmest wool to the sheerest silk, a wide range of yarns are used and there are mittens suitable for occasions as diverse as a summer party, a wedding, everyday country walks and the coldest of winter days. Some of the mittens, such as Sigrid and Elisabet, are delicate and lacy, others such as Elsa and Helga are worked in single colours; while others, such as Doris, Astrid and Ivar are beautifully patterned, and some are worked in stunning cable designs, such as Stina, Rune and Rolf. The variety of mittens in this book is simply superb and the patterns are suitable for both competent beginners and more advanced knitters.

A lovely book with gorgeous images. The charts are easy to follow and as a novice knitter even I managed to follow them. I loved all of the patterns and I would love to make them as presents as they are so beautiful. I would most definitely recommend this book. Lisa Parker Mittens and wrist warmers are popular items to knit, and these 27 patterns cover a range of styles. Many are designed with warmth in mind, but none are without a fashionable sensibility. The patterns are divided by season (spring and summer are combined into one category), with 7 to 12 offered for each time of year, and range from traditional colorwork to lace openwork to cables. As both authors live in Sweden, the influence of traditional Scandinavian stranded colorwork is strong, and more than half of the patterns feature this type of design. Many require the knitter to work in the round using two colors simultaneously. A brief introduction features details on choosing to use double-pointed needles or the magic-loop method as well as basic skills, including casting on and casting off. All but a few of the patterns use 2.5 mm (U.S. size 2) knitting needles and lace or fingering weight yarn, and all are charted with accompanying short written directions. The charts are produced in color and are large enough that following them is easy on the eyes. http://www.booklistonline.com/Pretty-Knitted-Hands-Mittens-Wrist-Warmers-for-All-Seasons-Clara-Falk/pid=8453349 -- Anne Heidemann Booklist After many years of knowing each other online Clara & Kamilla finally got to meet and it set off this book in motion. They decided on mittens as they are so versatile and you can make them for all seasons. The word pretty aptly describes the beautiful designs in this book. They use different yarns, colours and techniques to create the most amazing array of gloves for you to make. The book is broken down into seasons so you know you can find something to make for each time of the year. You can make designs using colour charts or using cables or lace designs. The patterns are in chart format so you will need to know how to use a knitting chart. Most of the designs are for ladies but there are some that are unisex. The designs are such good fun and are so different from each other. You will be making mittens for years to come, whether for yourself or as gifts. You will not be disappointed if you purchase this book! Crochet Addict UK Knit mittens and wrist warmers in many styles and different yarns. Twenty seven patterns are included, suitable for all knitters from beginners to advanced. You'll see all the designs at a glance at the front of the book. All designs use the double-pointed needle or magic loop technique, clear instructions are given. The designs are split into seasons. Each design is shown in a full-size image with materials, tension, finished size and instructions. Most have charts to follow but these are a good size and easy to read. The designs are contemporary featuring cables, lace and most of the winter designs are Scandinavian style. Two of my favourites are shown on the left hand side of the front cover. YarnsandFabrics.co.uk Issue 103 This attractive collection of 27 mittens and wristwarmers has a distinctly Scandinavian feel, with many of the projects having been photographed in a snowy Sweden. A wide range of techniques appears in the book, including stranded colourwork using traditional Nordic motifs, Latvian braids, classic cables and Bavarian twisted stitches. The projects are divided by season, and range from lacy wristwarmers for spring and summer to cosy mittens for winter. Our favourite designs include embroidered mitts; a pair of wristwarmers called 'Elsa' with leaf motifs; delicate silk fingerless gloves knitted in pure silk that would be perfect for a spring wedding; and 'Kerstin', 1970s-inspired colourwork mitts. We particularly love 'Sacha', a classic pair of festive Fair Isle mittens, ideal for the coming season. Each pattern fits an average

Övrig information

Kamilla Svanlund learned to knit as a child, but it was when she was a teenager that knitting really became a big part of her life. She started knitting mittens for her friends in upper secondary school, and it was fun to be able to give them something unique. That was how she started designing mittens - she could knit them quickly and there was room for lots of motifs on them, so she was able to give her creativity free rein. She started her blog in 2008 mainly to find other people with the same interest who were not at least 25 years older than her. Writing it has helped her to find lots of new friends and started discussions and debates on craft-related issues that are close to her heart. Blog: www.hemslojd-tidningen.se/argastickaren Clara Falk has knitted every day since she was about 14. At that time it was about having something unique, something that few other people had. Since then, knitting has developed into something that she needs to do to feel happy - knitting is calming and provides an outlet for her creativity, as well as time to reflect. In 2007 she started a blog, as she did not know many people who knitted at that time. The blog became a forum where people responded to what she was doing, and at the same time she got to know other people who knitted and could discuss things with them and be inspired.
