Two sort of matching Estonian mittens - - there a slight difference where the thumb pattern joins the main pattern. They were fun to make! I used handspun white yarn made from fleece from our sheep. The half-vikel decrease in Nancy Bush’s book is easy and very tidy looking. The triangular top of the mitten is made with these decreases.

Nancy Bush Estonian Knitting - - one mitten done!

I am so happy for this colorwork challenge. I had been putting off making mittens. Hats are so much easier. You only have to make one - - nothing that has to match!!!

I changed the cuff some and used the twisted purl braid instead of the yarnovers and plan to mirror image the two cuffs.
