Victorian Fancy Mittens

Today I want to show you my Fancy Mittens kitted from a Victorian Pattern .

These are knit using a pattern from a publication called Ladies Home Journal and it was the October 1885 Version. The pattern is titled Fancy Mitten.

Colour: L152
Yardage: 169m / 100g
Fibre Content: 100% Real Shetland Wool
Needles: 1.75mm

Size: Only one size given in pattern, I cast on 70
Date Started: Approx March 2021

I knit these up as I translated the pattern so that I might sell it for those interested in making their own pair with instructions that make a little more sense. However I seem to have lost all enthusiasm for this particular project so I shall see if it ever materialises into anything.

Do you like knitting historical patterns?

Have a great week and Keep Crafty!
