The shuttlecocks on the lawn of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art came to Kansas City under a cloud of controversy in 1994. Two decades later they are an iconic city landmark and are must see for tourists and locals alike.

Inspired by the art of Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen,these mitts combine a simple 2X2 Ribbing with embossed birdie motif to create a fun unisex mitt.

Skills needed:

  • Knitting in the round
  • Increases/Decreases
  • Chart reading

Whether you are a lover of pop art or just a badminton buff these are the fingerless mitts for you!
