This pattern was available in print for $6.00.

This pattern was exclusive to the 2012 Cooperative Press Sock/Mitt project club participants.

Pattern notes from designer Stephannie Tallent:

The deep, moody turquoise of this yarn, mixed with the gothic twisted stitches, brings to mind twilight shading into night, baroque cave dwellings with ornately carved stone, and… oh, just have fun knitting the socks and mitts! The mitts are offered in three sizes for perfect fit.

All yarn for this club was dyed by Kim of Indigodragonfly, who is lovely and wonderful and does fantastic colors.
