These elegant fingerless mittens are worked entirely in slip stitches. A textured feather adorns the back of each hand. The feather is a variation of the peacock feather in my “blinking peacock” shawl (which in turn is the crochet version of Michael Schmidt’s awesome knitted “Drachenfeuer” shawl). The mittens do not have the typical eye of a peacock feather, thus the “blind” in the name.

The pattern includes written instructions and step-by-step picture tutorials for all stitches and techniques used.
