These are fun, all colorwork mittens with a folded edge. The idea behind the Hyacinth mittens came from the plentiful Hyacinth flowers. The design creates a flower-like motif at the top of the mittens.

Although these are full colorwork mittens, the motif is simple and it doesn’t have any long floats.
