PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A KNITTING PATTERN (KNITTING INSTRUCTIONS) IN FORM OF A PDF FILE AND IS NON-REFUNDABLE

Frida Kahlo is especially well known for her numerous self-portraits. In one series of self-portraits she depicts herself with exotic animals, such as monkeys and parrots. It is in these paintings that she shows herself in her most Mexican attire, including the traditional hair style of thick braids piled up on top of her head. This hair style became almost her trademark, and was the inspiration for this fingerless mitten pattern.

The cable patterns create a rib effect that ensures that the mittens mould themselves around the hand in a perfect fit. Fewer stitches on cuff and top of mitten provide the extra snugness that makes fingerless mittens look so much more elegant!

The sizes are Women’s S, [M, L]. Mitten circumference above thumb 17[18, 19.5]cm / 6¾[7⅛, 7⅝]” for hands with a circumference above thumb of around 1cm / ½” more

The yardage given is rounded up to a full skein of Luxe B by Alpha B Yarn (etsy shop: AlphaBYarn).

The pattern provides detailed instructions, both fully written and charted (15 pages).
