Pattern now includes two versions: the Skulls & Flowers Mittens and the Skulls Fingerless Mittens Skulls & Flowers Mittens are fashioned with an allover skull pattern, a fitted cuff with flower motif, and gusseted thumb. The mittens pictured show the cuff stranded using three colors per row; there is an alternative chart for the cuff that calls for only two colors per row. Instructions are given for a rounded closure at the tips of the fingers, a more traditional mitten top (pictured), as well as an option for fingerless mittens. Difficulty Level: Advanced/Intermediate: pattern uses i-cord cast on, increases, decreases, working from charts, knitting in the round, grafting, stranded knitting, and managing long floats. Skull Fingerless Mitts are a variation on the Skulls and Flowers Mittens, worked at a larger gauge, over fewer stitches per row, and without the more advanced level knitting techniques. Difficulty Level: Intermediate / Adventurous Beginner: pattern uses increases, working from charts, knitting in the round, and stranded knitting.

Finding balance between adventure and calm, Jennifer's designs are inspired directly from her love of nature and wilderness, those spaces in which the wild and the tranquil inhabit. Her knitting designs use color and texture to articulate the transformational effect that nature can have on us. She has a Masters Degree in Environmental and Natural Resource Policy and when she is not knitting, Jennifer is usually gallivanting around in the wilderness.
