Härkmeri mittens

It took about two weeks (with other projects going on) to knit one mitten. The pattern comes from "Decorative crocheting" book by Marketta Luutonen. The whole idea of decorative or tapestry crochet is amazing! The most beautiful Korsnas sweaters are made this way. I love the fact that unlike Fair Isle knitting where you have length of yarn running behind your work, tapestry crochet allows for long interruptions in color with alternate yarn neatly tucked within the row. For my next pair (I am going to design it myself) I will use some of the smaller Fair Isle designs.
