Many are the legends surrounding Melusine. They
often have a pixie marrying a human with the caveat that he should never
intrude on her privacy. She would build him
a fine castle with her magic, and over the years
bear him many children. He would invariably peek, and seeing that she
was a mermaid, all would be lost.
Fiber Dreams' Melusine Mitts are
worked in the round. The focus of the stitch pattern is on the back of
the hand. The rest of the mitt is worked in twisted rib for a
185 (220) yards fingering weight yarn.
