FINALLY, responsibly sourced seafood straight from your knitting bag. The Fishkins mittens are a cheerful nod to all things seafood. Part knitting, part meal, part puppet; these mittens will provide many hours of entertainment, and no actual nourishment (except for your soul…giggles feed the soul).

This stranded colorwork pattern is sized for TODDLERS, KIDDOS, and ADULTS who love the sea (and bizarrely specific creature knitting). This pattern includes instructions for creating one FISH mitten and one WATER mitten, so there is no second mitten syndrome! These mittens are happy and whimsical with endless color possibilities. In fact, I have included a Fish mitten coloring sheet in this pattern for your menu planning needs.
