These mittens were inspired by La Catrina and El Catrin, the famous Day of the Dead skeletons. These elegant skeletons have been together in death since their creation in the early 1900s. Originally satirical cartoons, this dapper dead duo is now synonymous with the Day of the Dead celebration. These mittens were inspired by a partnership that spans the globe and defies even death itself. For this pair, TIL DEATH DO US PART just won’t cut it.

This pattern provides instructions for knitting EITHER a stacked Latvian braid cuff OR stranded colorwork cuff.
