Modification Monday: Steampunk Wedding Veyla Mitts



Original Patterns: Veyla and Bo Peep Gloves

Knitter Extraordinaire: Tanya (Ravelry ID, Blog)

Mods:   Combined two patterns into one for a pair of beautiful, vintage-inspired gloves. Project page is here.

What Makes This Awesome: I think you all know how much I  love a good pattern mash up! I don't think it would have ever occured to me to put these two patterns together, but I can't believe how beautiful the results are- the combination of the bo peep glove texture and the perfect lace cuff  of Veyla just look meant to be together! And those pearl buttons underline the delicate vintage beauty of these mitts. I'm in awe- they look so stunning.

That is such a cute mash up! Definitely looks like it was meant to be. The colour is just perfect too!

They're beautiful!! I can never visualize two patterns together - I'd love to mod things like that, but can often only see what's in front of me. I'm awe of this person's work, very beautiful!!

I never thought mitts or gloves are a good wedding accessory, but this one screams wedding, and it does so loudly that even I would like to wear them. Congrats on the good idea!

Love these -- so pretty! Wish I could get back into a knitting mood. I guess it's just too hot to even touch wool here at the moment, but I'm storing away ideas. Come on fall!
Blessings,
