Item details


Perfect for the person loves the sea and the graceful dolphin. Inspired by images of dolphins in Polynesian art, this hat and mittens pattern incorporates negative ease for a snug warm fit that lets you carry the dolphin’s delightful playfulness into a cold winter day. The mitten pattern features a different dolphin motif for each hand, a design of water spray for the thumb and an abstract wave pattern for the palm motif. The pattern comes in three sizes: small, medium and large, with charts for each size with two design options for the medium size.

The hat pattern features a three panel repeat of the dolphin motif, and a delicate lace-like pattern on the crown. The pattern comes with charts for each size, plus written instructions

Average review
Sooo beautiful! I love this pattern! I edited it because I'm using a thicker yarn and fatter needle, but it's coming along gorgeous and I kept the dark blue/teal color scheme!
