Kat at Just Crafty Enough is going strong with her challenge to design and knit a pair of mittens every month this year. The June installment was inspired by the Delft pottery she saw during a recent trip to the Netherlands.
The blue and white mittens are classic, with a floral motif on the front and little diamonds on the back. I like the cuff treatment that looks like a little city skyline.
They’re really cute and a great little colorwork project if you’re new to these skills. They’d be a great gift for someone whose heritage includes the Netherlands as well. Or knit them in any two colors for a pretty look regardless of their original inspiration.
Nice going, Kat!
