Dragonflies can be found in many different faith traditions, symbolizing wisdom, strength, transformation, perseverance, new beginnings and even the souls of our departed loved ones coming to visit us again. When I was asked to make a pair of mittens with dragonflies on them, I knew I wanted them to show the undulating colours and the joy we feel when we see them dancing in the meadows. I hope I’ve captured that spirit in this pattern.
Included in the pattern is a link for a tutorial on two-colour long-tail cast on as well as a link for Latvian braid tutorial.
Although the mittens are knit using fingering weight yarn, the colourwork makes them double thickness and therefore they are quite warm.
