For this Iron Craft challenge, we were asked to create something inspired by a piece of art. My inspiration was Andy Warhol’s Flowers.
I knew I was pushing it, but I planned to make a pair of mittens with the same pop art flower look. Well, life got in the way with birthdays, broken teeth and other distractions and these mittens didn’t get finished. I did get pretty close though.
As you can see, they still need thumbs and a good blocking. Still I’m really happy with them and think they show the inspiration well without being an exact copy of the design. Plus I learned a new skill, the Latvian braid you see on the cuffs.
These will get finished today and the pattern will be available on Thursday!
