These cozy cuffs and mittens were designed as companion pieces to the Amor Deliria hat, inspired by Lauren Oliver’s YA novel “Delirium”. They have the same cabled ribbing and wavey lace pattern as the hat, and are a quick and challenging knit to suit any taste.

The cuffs are worked with two needle sizes to emphasize the flare of the lace, while the mittens are worked at a tighter gauge for greater warmth. Detailed yardage requirements and measurements are provided below. Purchase both Delirium-inspired patterns to get 25% off.

Pattern is a five page pdf file, and uses charts - no written stitch directions are included.
