The Gabriel Mitts are inspired by the traditional farm worker’s clothing worn by the shepherd Gabriel Oak in Thomas Hardy’s ‘Far From the Madding Crowd.’
“Liddy looked from a back window into the courtyard (where) a crooked file of men was approaching the back door....Some were, as usual, in snow–white smock frocks of Russia duck, and some in whitey-brown ones of drabbet – marked on the wrists, breasts, backs and sleeves with honeycomb-work.”
The mitts feature a smocking effect cuff, and are easy to knit. The kit includes 100% British wool in a tweedy brown colour, the pattern and cute sheep knitting needles, so you can start knitting straight away. The kit is packaged in a brown Kraft carrier bag with a picture label attached.
A great gift for a Thomas Hardy lover or any knitter!
Fantastic kit. Really prompt delivery, well packaged. Many thanks
