107 Acantha PDF
Acantha was a minor character in Greek mythology. In one version of the story, Acantha was a woman who refused Apollo’s advances. In another version, Acantha was a man who returned Apollo’s advances. As in the story, these mitts can take on whatever character suits your desires. Worked from the cuff towards the fingers, this pattern can be used to make wrist-warming cuffs, fingerless mitts, or full mittens. Stitch patterns are both written and charted.
Notes on sizing: Mitts are designed with a bit of negative ease to help the fit and make the stitches show to their best advantage. Using a fabric measuring tape, measure your larger hand around the widest point, not counting the thumb. Knit the size that falls between 1 and 1.5 in smaller than the widest spot of your hand.
