A pattern inspired by Lucy Neatby’s Paradoxical mittens.
That strict overall design broken up by geometric shapes is so elegant.
I am very happy that I managed to work out a thumb gusset without interrupting the sleek lines. In my opinion a gusseted thumb gives the best fit. Living in Norway, I get to test mitten fit every winter.
Which one to choose? The one on the right is in English.
