FIBER DREAMS

93 Melusine PDF

$7.00 Each

Inspired by the legend of the Melusine, a pixie-like creature from the sea who marries a man, these lacy mitts are reminiscent of the sea from whence she came. Mitts are worked in the round. The focus of the stitch pattern is on the back of the hand. The rest of the mitt is worked in twisted rib for a comfortable fit.
