Acantha was a minor character in Greek mythology, but one whose story is somewhat confused. In one version, Acantha was a woman who refused Apollo’s advances. In another version, Acantha was a man who returned Apollo’s advances. Either way, these cuffs, mitts, and mittens are great for all.
Worked from the cuff towards the fingers, this pattern can be used as wrist-warming cuffs, fingerless mitts, or full mittens. A large range of sizes will ensure well-fitting hand warmers for most of the family.
