Sunspots are a bright orange variety of morning glory, another of my favorite flowers. Their small, brilliant blooms greet the sun each morning with a dazzling display.

Mitts are worked in the round in an all-over pattern, resulting in mitts that work equally well on either hand, which is perfect for people like me who always manage to grab the wrong one first. Thumb gusset is worked in stockinette stitch.

Want a matching cowl? Go see Moonvine, or Morning Glory if you want both patterns.
