The Bird Phoenix mittens

This pattern can be associated with the Asian motif where the firebird fights the drake. The Bird Phoenix mittens are designed by Elsa Poulsson, who is known for collecting Norwegian knitting patterns in the first part of the last century around the country. She published a book called ” Rutemønster for strikking og broderi” in 1954, which is a book of graphic patterns for knitting and embroidery. She was also a textile artist.

The pattern for these mittens can be found in Annemor Sundbøs book “Norwegian gloves and mittens” or at her Ravelry page.
