This pair of mittens highlight a common motif of the north – knitted flowers. Porjus is the name of the town in which it was created. Both knitted word and date make this mitten a standout. Besides common colorwork, the knitter will need to use techniques to incorporate long floats and duplicate stitch. Braids and tassels finish off this northern beauty.
