Late Bloomer Mittens Kit
We've just received more of these wonderful kits including a new colourway, 'Shrub'!
These come with one of our beautiful cotton bags.
Please note that the pattern for this is NOT included with the kit. See the link below to purchase the pattern.
It is all of the yarn you will need to make any of the five colour options.
The pattern is designed by Kristin Ledgett and can be bought as a PDF from her through Ravelry here.
The Late Bloomer Mittens were conceived on a sunny autumn day in Toronto. It was during a bike ride past lawns and gardens decorated with fall foliage that the idea took hold. Dinner plate–sized dahlias in burnt orange, yellow, and red bumped heads with towering sunflowers reaching toward a blue sky.
These mittens were designed to imitate this jubilant mishmash of blooms.
For all colour versions, there is one size kit (2 skeins of Lichen & Lace Rustic Heather Sport and 1 skein of Marsh Mohair). The large size comes up quite big without the lining.
We think the medium size, once lined, will fit most people and be really super cosy.
