Knit in the round with fingering weight yarn, these stranded colorwork mittens incorporate elements from traditional folk mitten designs, including knitted braids along the cuff, thumb gusset on the palm, and a pointed top. The mitten body and cuff feature a two-color sunflower motif, with a smaller scale geometric pattern on the palm. The pattern is written for size women’s small - medium and includes charts for the cuff, mitten body, and thumb. The pattern includes written instructions and charts for the mittens only.
