Matching fingerless mitts for Pythagoras’ beret.
Get Pythagoras’ mitts, his pullover, his hat and his beret (4 patterns) at a discounted price of 13.50 € instead of 20.50 €, no coupon code needed. Just put the 4 patterns in your basket, the promotion shows at checkout.

Pythagoras’ mitts are worked bottom up starting with a Latvian two-color cast on. Written instructions are included and a photo tutorial can be found in the separate pdf. It’s a lovely way to start colorwork, but you can use another cast on method if you prefer. Special increases are used to shape the thumb gusset. They are quite unnoticeable.
