    Description

    I was inspired by Latvian mittens with their sun symbols which have the meaning of change and renewal/hope. I find this is particularly suited to this time of the year and the holiday season. As they are not only worn at Christmas or Yuletide I chose the name Wintertide where “tide” merely means “a time of year”. There is a somewhat similar crochet mitten pattern with the same name on ravelry which is cool, here is my knitted version.

    This is a standard mitten shape, knitted in the round with peasant thumb. The thumb is knitted after the main part of the mitten has been done.

    Sizes: Women's S/M/L Hand circumference 19.5, 21, 22.5 cm/ 7.5, 8, 8.8 inches.
