Child's Latvian Mittens

I jumped right into my Latvian Mitten (by Lizbeth Upitis) book today and started on the sample child’s mitten (Graph 4). It’s basically a glorified swatch that allows you to try out a few of the techniques and general construction of Latvian Mittens.

I’ve just finished the braid… and backwards, I might add. That’s okay. I did it right the for the first few stitches and then tinked back and did it backwards. The braid thing and my brain have now meshed, so I think I’ll be able to have the slanting going the right direction next time.

The original mitten has a fringed edge, but I decided that it might be a bit too fussy for a child’s mitten so I’ve substituted a picot edge instead.
