18th Century Knitted Mittens


Pattern & Instructions by Mara Riley

Adult sizes for hands from 7" circumference to 10.5" Children's sizes 5.5" - 6.5". Ms Riley's note on cuff treatments: The garter stitch technique used for the cuff is found regularly on stockings and on the Gunnister glove, which helps prevent the edges of the knitted garments from rolling.

One of the mittens recovered on the wreck of the General Carelton of Whitby (1792) had a row of fringe around the wrist and a second row about 1.5 inches from the wrist, either as decoration or perhaps to help retain warmth.

Made in the USA.
