Knit from the bottom up in the round, the Dandelion Mittens are worked from multiple charts with a thumb gusset and traditional Norwegian-style shaping. On the public side, spring dandelions blossom in the morning dew, where a herringbone diamond pattern runs across the palms. Part of the Taraxacum genus, dandelions are not only entirely edible, but an important part of spring pollination for many insects. Blocking on mittens forms is recommended.
