Hibiscus Mittens

BY CHRISTINE PAIGE

These wonderfully detailed mitts, shown here beautifully knit by Raveler lacesockslupins in elann Pippi Longcolors Lite, feature a traditional Selbu diagonal pattern on the palms with hibiscus flowers on the back and even a wee “honu” (sea turtle) on the thumbs.  The pattern is available as a free download on the Ravelry website, but the designer advises that it has NOT been thoroughly tested.
