Icicle Mitts by Mary Reigstad

Adorable icicles festoon these chunky fingerless mitts from Minnesota designer Mary Reigstad. If you’ve ever been to Minnesota during the winter, you already know the inspiration!

From Beth:

Minnesota winters are not for sissies. Bitter cold and lots of ice and snow are the standard and knitters have a very long knitting season.

Minnesota designer Mary Reigstad created these adorable mitts for those who like or need to keep fingers unencumbered. The saucy curls add a bit of whimsy and celebrate the beauty of the icicles that adorn every roof line during the winter. One size fits just about everyone and it’s a quick gift knit. Almost makes you happy to see freezing temps. Almost.
