Magpie Fibers is offering kits in a variety of beautiful colors here: Wishmaker Mitts Kit

The design of these fingerless mitts was inspired by the dandelion’s seed stage, commonly associated with wishmaking. A wide graphic panel on the back of each mitt wraps around to meet a narrower panel along the palm side of the mitt. This pattern is recommended for knitters who have experience with stranded colorwork, reading from charts, and knitting in the round. The mitts shown were knit with Magpie Fibers Domestic Fingering in colorways Baby Got Black, Tidepool, and Alloy.
