The original Mostly Mittens book has been revised and two bonus caps have been added. Inspired by her own Czech heritage, the author began extensive research into the beautiful and distinctive knitting of the Komi region of Russia. With traditions of small ethnic groups in danger from cultural encroachment, Charlene hurriedly sought all possible information in an effort to preserve these lovely color-pattern motifs. The author includes fascinating historical knowledge of the Komi people and their knitting habits, detailed instructions for planning your own layout and mitten design, and directions for 35 mittens and 4 hats.
