Simple flowers are all rimed with frost. The Frost Flower mittens are inspired by traditional Nordic mittens with a stunning motif on the back of the hand and a simple vertical stripe pattern on the palm. All of the sizes share the same motif on the back of the hand. This motif is expanded or shrunk in order to offer this pattern in multiple sizes. The sizes will not have identical colorwork. The thumb is formed with a gusset that grows out of the side of the mittens.
The Frost Flower pattern is part of the design collection for our 12th annual Red Scarf scholarship fundraiser! All proceeds from the sale of this pattern through December 31, 2022 are applied directly to our scholarship fund, administered by Foster Care to Success.
This Red Scarf scholarship pattern is knit in Bare Naked Wools Festivus 7.0 Worsted (100% Organic Merino) in the limited-edition, custom colorways Hollyberry and Birch. A portion of Festivus yarn sales go directly to the scholarship fund.
Please note this pattern has both written and charted instructions. Any pattern support is supplied by the contributing designer. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, or yardage requirement.
