(6) Name: 'Knitting : Amrei

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, k2tog, duplicate stitch

Pattern Description:

Amrei is a very old german woman')s name which I totally love. I don't know why, but I have this picture in my mind of a woman knowing the forests, knowing every herb by name and knowing everything about curing diseases and brewing potions. Surely such a woman would need mitts to protect her hands while gathering herbs, and maybe they would have a small embroidery, showing whom they belong to. Nothing complicated, just a small motif

That was how these mitts came to my mind.

They knit up very quickly and the embroidery is done in a minute, too. All in all it's a quick and lovely project, making the perfect accessoire for yourself or a nice last-minute gift for christmas, too!

The mitts are knitted bottom-up in the round and the motif is applied using duplicate stitch.
