Inspired by Art Deco, these stranded colorwork mittens offer just the right combination of elegance and playfulness.They are a perfect accessory to brighten your wintry wadrobe! Pick your favorite colors, and remember: the more contrast, the better! ‘Ui’ is a Kazakh word for ‘house’ and ‘home.’ The shapes and lines in these mittens reminded me of the cottage I grew up.
