This stranded-work set takes its name from a Latin word meaning “heart shaped,” reflecting the elaboration of a heart design of the main motif on both the mitts and cowl.

In this Cordatus Cowl and Mitts set, scrollwork and small crosses are found in the border and secondary designs. A six-round corrugated rib edges both patterns.
