Many years ago, when travelling through New Zealand and admiring the ever-changing sky, I discovered my love for the colours and shapes of clouds. Coincidentally, the contemporary name of the Maori people for their country is “Aotearoa”, literally meaning “The Long White Cloud”.
Aotearoa mitts feature a stitch and colours that remind me of fluffy cumulus clouds. They are constructed in an unusual way, with a decorative flap that shapes the upper part of the hand and defines the thumb hole when folded over. Light, elegant, and adorned with pretty buttons, these mitts or fingerless gloves will complement your evening wardrobe on one of those cool spring or autumn evenings and keep your wrists and forearms warm.
The pattern includes both charts and full written instructions and has been tested and tech edited.
