These traditional Newfoundland mittens are patterns that every knitter should have in their collection. This book is a collection of rare mitten patterns collected, and in some cases recreated, by Christine LeGrow of Spindrift Handknits and Shirley "Shirl the Purl" Scott.
These two women have teamed up to preserve and promote traditional Newfoundland knitting. By assembling patterns for hand—knit items such as trigger mitts, flap caps and scarves these women are keeping knitting culture alive.
CHRISTINE LEGROW & SHIRLEY A. SCOTT
Christine LeGrow of Spindrift Handknits and Shirley A. Scott (“Shirl the Purl”) have collected and studied mittens from across Newfoundland for the past 40 years. Recognizing the value of these artifacts, they have expertly and painstakingly recreated more than 20 heritage patterns for today’s knitter.
