Pattern and instructions by Mara Riley
Adding to her collection of period knitting patterns, Mara Riley has designed these mitts which were in Mara's own words 'inspired by a reference in Linda Baumgarten's What Clothes Reveal in which a knitter advertises that she will remake old stockings into mitts. Accordingly I modeled the detailing on these mitts, including the "seam" down one side of the arm, on details from 18th century common stockings.'
This pair of mitts, knitted in sport-weight yarn will fit a medium-sized woman's arm but size may be adjusted by using larger or smaller needles.
Made in the USA.
