Things to start with…
The motifs on these mittens are reminiscent of 16th-century tapestries. Their vertical symmetry adds interest and enjoyment to this colorful pair. Just enough to be fun. Not enough to be overwhelming.
The traditional shaping of each mitten starts at the cuff with a small hem and a picot edge at the hem turn. A series of decreases and increases shape the wrist for easy comfort.
