Arhippa Mittens by Outi Kater

Arhippa Mittens


Designed by Outi Kater

Arhippa is an old Karelian name meaning 'the master of horses'. The stitch pattern in Arhippa Mittens was inspired by traditional Karelian weaving and knitting patterns, that are thought to have their origin in ancient mythology. The pattern includes instructions for four sizes (baby's, child's, women's and men's) in different colour combinations. You will receive the pattern and yarn for the size of mittens you order.
