These bulky weight mittens fly off the needles to create a thick, cozy accessory that pairs with the matching Arctic Sky hat to keep you warm all winter long! This pair of patterns was inspired by the Northern Lights-- one of the world’s most spectacular natural phenomena. These bright dancing lights occur in the night sky near the earth’s magnetic poles as electrically charge particles from the sun enter the earth’s atmosphere and create a stunning display of color. Destination Yarn created a colorway inspired by this luminosity, which is paired with white colorwork speckles of stars in this design to create your very own Arctic Sky.
