Favorite Mittens: Best Traditional Patterns from Fox & Geese & Fences and Flying Geese & Partridge Feet
by Robin Hansen

Owners of Robin Hansen's two previous mitten knitting books will find reason to own her newest entry Favorite Mittens. By improving the pattern format and including new pictures, the book will become the new standard in traditional mitten knitting.

Not only does the book include mitten patterns, but also stories on how the garments fit into the folk traditions of the areas in which they are found. Did you know Maine knitters dyed their mittens black to find them easily in the snow?
