Thanks to MissChief the pattern was updated with larger charts and also reversed charts in January 2012, for the KAL in the group “Stranded”.

Some animals have more decorative shapes than others, and the hippocampus – or seahorse - is one of them. The different shades of the fabulous Kauni yarn combined with a wavy feather and fan cuff turn a seahorse couple into a pair of beautiful mittens.


There is a small error in the pattern. If you choose to work the cuff in the round, you should cut yarn after the cuff. You will then slip some sts to where you’re going to start the round for the hippocampus chart. This is to make the wavy cuff pattern symmetrical and align with the rest of the pattern.
