About the Matilija Mitts

The stitch pattern on these mitts reminded me of a flower, and one of my very favorite flowers is the Matilija Poppy. It is a gigantic plant native to the Ventura County area, and its blooms are big, white flowers with a sunny yellow center. The flowers show up every year in June, just as the summer is starting, and their petals flutter in the breeze.

These mitts are knit in a fingering-weight yarn and graded to three sizes. That’s so you can make sure they fit you just right and, hopefully, use up some leftovers. I’m a big fan of mitts for using up yarn left from knitting socks because mitts in my size only take about 35 g of yarn. If you need a little more, you can use a second yarn for contrasting ribbing at the wrist, fingertips, and thumb.

Mitts offer lots of opportunities for customizing your project! If you like these mitts, be sure to check out the Serenity Mitts and the Solace Mitts, too.
