“These stranded mittens feature an allover geometric pattern on the hand, and a modified Norwegian “lice” filler on the palm and thumb. I was so inspired by this intriguing color combination, with its strong complimentary undertones. The rich, golden Hayloft has a base of orange flecks that combine harmoniously with Truffle Hunt’s underlying shades of blue. This cool brown really makes the colors pulsate together. We encourage you to experiment with your own color combinations!” - Jared Flood


Mittens are worked circularly from the bottom up.
