Down The Rabbit Hole

Part of the Lit Knits collection.

Alice passes a boring day by the river with her sister. Unexpectedly, a White Rabbit rushes past, pulls out a watch all the while exclaiming how late it is. Naturally, Alice must follow after it. And so begins Alice's adventures in Wonderland.

These mittens are inspired by the story Alice's Adventures In Wonderland, first published in 1865 by Lewis Carroll. The perpetually late White Rabbit runs across the tops of both mittens. The White Rabbit's watch can be found in the palm of the left hand. In true Wonderland fashion, the watch is guaranteed to tell time accurately twice a day.

The mittens are knit from the cuff up. Waste yarn is used to hold the place for the afterthought thumbs.
