Released for World Quaker Day 2016 (October 2nd) these mittens feature the Quaker proverb You lift me, and I’ll lift thee, and we will rise together, which speaks to this year’s theme: Connecting Friends, Crossing Cultures and Changing Lives.

And the overall style recalls a form of 18th century embroidery now called the “Ackworth School” or “Quaker” because the style of embroidered design originated at the Ackworth Quaker boarding school in West Yorkshire in the late 1700s (the school opened in 1779).

The pattern links include a small booklet with instructions, and the charted mitten design as a second link.
