Knitting Pattern: Edelweiss Handwarmers

Knitting Pattern: Edelweiss Handwarmers


Designed by Angela Westover

I don’t know about you, but I can’t think of the Alps without thinking about the sweet little flower that flourishes there. Edelweiss is so popular, it’s been immortalized in a song known around the world. This pattern reflects the sharp peaks and the dainty flower in a lace pattern that’s both warm and elegant, ideal for any dress-up outfit! I love how perfectly these mold to the hand, making them a delight to wear.
