For lovers of winged things and the natural world :)
These quick to knit, lepidoptera inspired mitts feature an embossed motif of an affable moth (not of the wool eating kind, promise!). The motif is deceivingly simple to create - knits, purls, basic decreases, some yarn overs and possibly one or two new techniques for you to learn, is all it takes to make these little winged friends.
