Cécile mittens is Hélène Magnússon‘s new take on the traditional mittens from Skagafjördur: “I reinterpreted the traditional flowerpot motif in long-armed cross stitch as a fantasy embroidery.” The pattern comes into 7 sizes, children and adultes. It is called Cécile after a popular French embroiderer who came in one of The Icelandic Knitter’s knitting tours in Iceland.

Les moufles traditionnelles du fjord Skagafjördur se montrent ici sous un nouveau jour. Le motif traditionnel de pot de fleurs brodé au vieux point de croix islandais est ici réinterprété sous la forme d’une broderie fleurie fantaisiste. Décliné en 7 tailles, enfants et adultes, ce modèle de Hélène Magnússon est un clin d’oeil à une brodeuse française bien connue de la blogosphère: facile !
