someone posted a question about looking for a book which would have good mittens patterns in it. I suggested these 2 wonderful leaflets, below, and decided to start a new thread listing them because they would probably be useful for many other folks, as well.
1. Patons booklet no. 500406, "Gloves and Mitts". It costs something like $4.
2. This is an old one from the 1950's, by Bucilla, entitled "Gloves and Mittens to Knit and Crochet for the Entire Family". I have my mum's old battered copy, and now someone thankfully has transcribed the entire thing onto a site.
