Veris II

All this happened, more or less  *

The idea for the Veris mittens was a joint effort with Helle, a good friend and the talented dyer behind TheDanishDyelot. Her beautiful colors inspired me to design a stylish, cozy set of mittens with a matching hat that are super fun to knit and a delight to wear.
The slip stitch pattern enhances almost every color combo you can think of, and the mitts look just as good in very distinct and contrasting colors as in something more ton-sur-ton.

Dream up your perfect pair and go and enjoy yourself!
