Mount Maxwell Mittens
A knitting pattern by Elizabeth Sullivan
These sturdy men’s mittens are named for Mount Maxwell, a great eagle-watching spot on Salt Spring Island off the west coast of Canada. The design features corrugated rib cuffs, afterthought thumbs, and a stranded colourwork pattern that provides extra warmth and density.
This pattern is also available as part of the Kith & Kin Collection.
