Bernie’s Mittens – Mittens inspired by those Bernie Sanders wore at Joe Biden’s Inauguration on January 20, 2021. These mittens repeat the same bold colorwork motif around the hand. Sanders’ mittens feature a contrasting thumb and black fabric across the palm.
Bernie’s own mittens were made by Jen Ellis, a Vermont schoolteacher. She sewed them from scraps of old wool sweaters and lined them with fleece. My pattern does not aim to subtract from her work, it is inspired by the eye-catching pattern on the front.
