Acantha was a minor character in Greek mythology. In one version of the story, Acantha was a woman who refused Apollo’s advances. In another version, Acantha was a man who returned Apollo’s advances.
As in the story, these mitts can take on whatever character suits your desires. Worked from the cuff towards the fingers, this pattern can be used to make wrist-warming cuffs, fingerless mitts, or full mittens.
