Ysolda Snapdragon Flip Tops PDF
Snapdragon Flip Tops are fun and highly practical mittens with flip-tops that will keep your fingers toasty warm but allow them to make a quick escape when you need to unlock the door or button your coat. The cable and petal pattern on the cuffs grows into an elegant motif on the back of the hand that invisibly incorporates the necessary shaping for the thumb. Picking up stitches for the flip-tops has the potential to look messy but detailed illustrated instructions are provided for a method that looks virtually seamless. Complete a cute matching set by making the Snapdragon Tam.
