As some may know I’m a comic book nerd. I read comic books now for most of my life, I started “reading” (ok let’s be honest, looking a pictures) when I was around 4.
One of the female heros I always loved is the Lady Sif from the Thor series. She is on hell of a warrior and still female.
So when I started my brain storming about knitting patterns inspired by comic book heros, I just needed a pattern with her iconic armor.
I must admit that I’m somewhat of a fingerless mitten addict, so combining the two was a logical step for me.
Her warrior skirt and body armor build the cuff and hand portion of the mitten, the garter stitch on top are a nod to her diadem.
The mitten are worked with a lateral braid, which give the pattern a certain look, but is easier to work then it may look. I even provided a little photo tutorial with the pattern.
This first page of one of her books describes what I like about her best:
And hey, even with a sword and warrior gauntlets I can’t be serious or silent while doing a photoshoot. Yes my friend and photographer complains a lot about the fact that I just can’t keep my mouth shut.
