These elegant mitts are perfect for winter, spring and fall! The curls and swirls in this pattern were inspired by the graceful peaks and embellishments of Painted Ladies, tall, proud multi-colored Victorian-style houses that can be found all across America. The soft hues of Swan’s Island’s naturally-dyed, organic merino fingering weight are matched with soft Bristol Yarn Gallery Alpaca-Silk to give your hands a soft and beautiful treat. Or, you can easily substitute your favorite fingering weight yarn for this pattern. These mitts have the style and timeless elegance of Painted Ladies, as well as the warm coziness of your favorite hand-knit. You’ll be wearing them for your morning tea and your afternoon stroll every day! This pattern includes instructions for two women’s sizes, depending on your preferred type of wrist-warmer. It also includes an easy-to-follow chart.
