Inspired by the textiles of the Italian Renaissance, the Firenze mittens come in two sizes, with separate charts for each size. The mittens have a Scandinavian thumb and braiding on the cuffs, and are finished with a three-needle bind off. A matching cowl pattern is also available; both patterns can be made with 1x50g and 1x20g of each colour of the recommended yarn.
