Inspired by Maggie Stiefvater’s Shiver - Linger - Forever trilogy

Sam’s guitar player mitts are knitted in the round in brioche. The front side features some nice cabling in the shape of a lying eight: ∞. Eternity – mirroring Sam’s eternal love for music, poetry and his girlfriend Grace. You may add a little pocket for Sam’s plektrum on one mitt. Knit them for smaller women/teen-hands or bigger men-hands. These mitts are super warm to keep guitar playing hands protected – playing in cold cellars, on the street, in the woods!
