Journeyman Mittens by Outi Kater



Journeyman Mittens

A pair of knitted sock cuffs from Eastern Karelia, held in the collections of the National Museum of Finland, was the source of inspiration for the design of Journeyman Mittens. The mittens have got two-colour ribbing which is often found in traditional Shetland knitwear.
