Jardin Sauvage Vampire Mitts

pattern price: $2.99

This is a pair of fingerless mitts inspired by my favorite vampire, Lestat de Lioncourt from Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. The black of the night, the crimson of blood, and the decadence of the Ancien Régime come together in these mitts, which feature an all-over fountain lace pattern and delicate loop and braid lace edging. Worked in the round in a hand-dyed or solid worsted-weight yarn, these mitts make a pretty accessory for any vampire lover.

“I’m Gentleman Death in silk and lace, come to put out the candles.”

– The Vampire Lestat, by Anne Rice
