Wild Sage Mitts

Wild Sage Mitts are inspired by the wild sage plant (Salvia verbenaca) the flowers of which range from soft purple to violet and sprawl out on tall stems. The mitts are worked in the round from cuff up in two easily memorizable lace patterns, given in written and charted format. A cuff with an eyelet rib and a thumb gusset give the mitts a comfortable fit. Left and right mitts are identical and can be worked two-at-a-time using either DPNs or magic loop.

 

The pattern includes a fingering-weight and a DK-weight version for the mitts.
