These colorwork mittens feature cameos—those most classic Regency silhouettes—of a young lady and her fine gentleman gazing at each other. The silhouettes are framed with cabled ovals, worked with the contrasting color against the main/background color. The cables give an unexpected hint of texture to the stockinette-stitch mittens and add a little extra challenge for the knitting. In the background are diamond and stripe patterns inspired by historical wallpaper patterns. A deep cuff of twisted-stitch ribbing keeps the mittens snug and practical.
