Winter Sun Mitten Pattern

$4.99

These gorgeous mittens feature a lacy cuff, baltic braid trim, and a geometric Lithuanian design that represents the sun. In winter, there is not much sunshine and thoughts of long, warm summer days are important to keep up morale during the cold dark months. The oak is also knowns as the sun tree, the tree of the Goddess Saulė who lives in a castle surrounded by a magical apple orchard. These trees produce apples of gold, silver, and diamonds.

Description

You can use either a thinner yarn that blooms when washed, like Teksrena wool or Shetland fingering weight, or a heavier yarn that doesn’t, such as sport or DK weight merino. The gauge is quite tight to create a firm, windproof fabric for even the coldest weather.
