Child-sized mittens knitted in stranded colorwork. The fronts depict a friendly octopus while the palms are patterned to suggest the rows of suckers which line the underside of an octopus’ arms. The cuffs are knitted extra-long in corrugated ribbing, to keep little wrists toasty. One size, to fit a 4 year old child.
