Blue Skies and Butterflies

  • A knitting pattern by Thorn Maiden Designs

    Inspired by Escher's Sky and Water tessellation, these mittens are basic in shape, enlivened with an ombre-like colourwork shift from blue to yellow on both sides. Both mittens are worked identically, with the gusset thumb worked at the side, to fit either hand. A simple but interesting knit for those who carry summer in their hearts through the colder months!

    This pattern is also available as part of the Kith & Kin Collection.
