Knit PDF - Mother-Daughter Mittens
These folkloric mittens feature a shaped four color cuff with bobble trim. The main section of the mittens is worked in Fair Isle knitting in a motif inspired by embroidered textiles from Uzbekistan. (Note the antique suzani background which I picked up at a flea market several years ago.) The mittens are embellished with French knots and lazy daisy embroidery.
This design was originally published in my book Color By Kristin by Sixth and Spring in 2009.
