**This listing is for a KNITTING PATTERN ONLY. Not a finished pair of mittens, not yarn in any form. Just the pattern to knit a pair for your very own.**
Colourwork mittens inspired by Phèdre, the heroine of Jacqueline Carey’s Legacy of Kushiel series. The briar rose motif on the back of the hand is reminiscent of Phèdre’s marque (or tattoo) that she has across her entire back.
These are the perfect mittens to wear with your sangoire cloak, whether you’re off to meet a patron or protecting the interests of Terre D’Ange. They are perfectly fine as well if you’ve just got cold hands this winter and would like something pretty to keep them warm.
PLEASE NOTE: NO SPOILERS PLEASE! I have not yet finished reading the entire Kushiel series!
