Guadalupe Mitts ~ an intentionally transformative design by Cat Bordhi

Worked flat in garter stitch, these mitts are a peaceful and rhythmic knit, easily fit to your hand simply by trying it on as you proceed. The elegant motif is worked with twisted slip stitches.

The design, with rivers of knits that cross over to experience their neighbor’s reality, is meant to carry the heart of the Guadalupe story that first emerged in Mexico and spread throughout the Americas and beyond. For nearly 500 years, Guadalupe has inspired people at odds with one another to recognize their kindred sacred core. I always have a pair of Guadalupe mitts on my needles, and share them with friends and strangers, asking that they eventually share them with someone else. May the wisdom of Guadalupe warm your soul, your hands, and our world.
