Pattern Description:

Our November designer lives in a sleepy little German town. People here are friendly, the cityscape dotted with trees and parks, and life meanders at a gentle pace.

Once it was the bustling capital, but now Bonn is best known for its congeniality, past glory and one very famous inhabitant. Every heart in Bonn swells with pride at the mention of his name; Ludwig van Beethoven.

To the bewilderment of tourists, shops in the city center may not open until almost noon, but come rain or shine they will find an imposing statue of this most famous resident dominating the center of the town square.

The statue has always held special significance for Melanie. It(tm)s a touchstone; something that represents home. In the summer people sit at his feet, chatting, relaxing, enjoying the sun. But when winter's chilly winds and snow drive the city dwellers inside, the big guy stands there alone, steadfast, braving the elements.

This image of Beethoven in the winter; a coat of soft, thick snow on his shoulders, was the inspiration for our November design.

Snow upon stone. Light grey upon dark. The tracks of pigeons in the snow at his feet. You'll find all of these elements in the design of these charming mitts. Embark on a trip to Bonn with EFN as you knit the Beethoven Mitts.
