Note: the instructions in the Symbols in Stithches ebook are recipes. The example shown is only one variation of what you can make.

The Symbols: The realistic rose motif was particularly popu- lar, but only for a short time, in Lithuania Minor on the Baltic Sea. Just as in America, the rose was seen as a symbol of love and luck, and the design was popular for gifts given at weddings and births. Roses probably fell out of fashion as mass-produced garments became more available and women had less time to spend on complicated knitting projects. As the intricate rose motif became less evident, there was a resurgence in the popularity of geometric patterns with easily memorized repeats.

The Stitches: CO the number of sts needed to make the wrist warmer the length you want, from your wrist up toward your elbow, usually 30 to 70 sts.
