The kits are here!
Please note that the pattern for this is in Making magazine issue 10 / INTRICATE and it is NOT included with the kit.
It is all of the yarn you will need to make any of the four colour options and the yarn comes with a Loop cotton bag.
Pattern is designed by By Kristin Ledgett
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 a small size kit (1 skein of each base of yarn) and medium/large size (2 Rustic Heather skeins and 1 Marsh mohair skein ). These come up quite big without the lining.
We think the medium size, once lined, will fit most people and be really super cosy.
*Please double check the finished measurements to make sure you receive the correct size.
