After making the Nordic Lace Hat, I thought the pattern repeat would look good on a pair of mittens too! My hands get really cold at work, so I wanted something stylish I could wear but still type at the same time! Thus the Nordic Lace Mittens were born... :) There are also a matching patterns for a hat and a cowl - If you go to my library there is a discount on the set. Enjoy! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knitting in the round magic loop method or dpns increase/decrease yarn overs - basic lace - the matching cowl is a good place to start!
