I love autumn! The leaves are changing color and the weather is cooling down. It is time to celebrate the Day of the Dead! I simply can’t wait another day. The Day of the Dead is a beautiful commemoration of lost family and friends. It is rich with color, tradition, and love. I designed this pattern with all three in mind.

Sizes can be adjusted by changing gauge.

This pattern was originally published as part of a Mystery Mitten Knit-a-Long. Did you miss it? Don't worry! There will be another Day of the Dead MMKAL in 2018. Keep your eyes peeled for more info!
