New and Improved! Originally published in 2011. I’ve edited and updated the formatting of my Blue Wild Indigo Mitts pattern for 2016. Still free. Happy knitting!

The two distinct pattern sections on these mitts evoke the tall grass prairie. The diagonal ribbing represents the ever-present wind and the knot pattern the wildflowers. In fact, I was going to name them Prairie but decided to name them for a native wildflowers that grow on the prairie instead.
