Overview

Robin Hansen can justifiably claim to be the person who started the groundswell of interest in roots knitting patterns for mittens. When Fox & Geese & Fences: A Collection of Traditional Maine Mittens was published a generation ago, it was an instant success, and nary a knitter above the age of thirty has not heard of it. It was followed by a second, equally inspiring collection: Flying Geese & Partridge Feet: More Mittens from Up North & Down East. Favorite Mittens is a compilation of some of the most popular traditional designs from Robin's groundbreaking first two books, presenting these tried-and-true patterns in a new format, with step-by-step directions revised and updated for ease of knitting, thanks to the helpful feedback Robin has gotten from the knitters who flock to her workshops all around the country.

    WELL WORTH THE WAIT!

    A compilation of many of the favorite mitten patterns from Ms. Hansen's first two books, with revised instructions (set out in a table fashion -- makes them very easy to follow) and additional information about the origins of the mitten patterns. I expected a pallid reprint of a few of the patterns from her other two books, but this is a stand-alone volume and a very valuable addition to any mitten-knitter's library.
