A versatile pair of fingerless mitts inspired by Maggie Stiefvater’s book series “The Raven Cycle.”

I was inspired by the imagery in the song running through the third book, “Blue Lily, Lily Blue” and wanted to design a pair of mitts that I thought captured the style and spirit of the main character, Blue. The cuff features a repeating raven wing-esque cable and transitions into a cable on top of the hand meant to invoke a crown with a subtle detail of a sword embossed into the palm.
