Paluk Mitts Pattern

Yesterday I released another pattern. These are my Paluk Mitts. These lace mitts are knit using the Lingonberry pattern (pohlamarjakiri) from Haapsalu Ratik, New York 1972 (republished in Nancy Bush’s Knitted Lace of Estonia). Paluk is a common name for Lingonberry in Estonia. These mitts are inspired by the Regency period in England; I’m a great Jane Austen fan and I could see Elizabeth Bennett or many other Jane Austen characters wearing these feminine mitts.

The mitts pattern can be downloaded from Ravelry or from the sidebar (raverly and non-ravelry users).

Skill Level: Intermediate or adventurous beginner

Yarn: approx. 110-140 yards fingering weight yarn for main color (MC) and 35-40 yards fingering weight yarn for contrast color.
Used in photo: Louet Gems Fingering Yarn (MC: Aqua, CC: Paisley)

These mitts provide both written and charted instructions of the lace repeat.
