Project: Mittens for the Fishermen by Esther Leuder
' I have always loved the textures found within many a fisherman’s sweater and/or mitten pattern. For these mittens, I modified a stitch pattern slightly so it fit my mitten/gauge needs, so this isn’t necessarily a pattern written by me, but more of how I put together this particular pair of mittens.'
