Soft, delicate and elegant, Saku Hana (blooming flowers) mitts feature a sophisticated panel of stitches reminiscent of a Japanese flower garden.
The mitts were designed especially for Colour Adventures Dia Aran, a soft plump yarn, with a beautiful twist.
The sample uses the exquisite Blossom colorway.

The mitts feature very elegant cable panel at the top and intriguing ribbing at the palm side. The combination of those two will give you the perfect fit and will keep the mitt in shape for years to come. The generous length will make sure your hands stay warm, your knuckles covered without the extra bulk in your palm you will get with most of the mitts.

This pattern is suitable for aran weight yarns.
Sample shown: Colour Adventures Dia Aran, Blossoms colorway.
