These wonderful gauntlets, designed by Sylvia Watts-Cherry, are influenced by African symbols used in traditional textile patterns. The bobbles add a playful adaptation to the traditional symbols. The gauntlets can be worn full length up to the elbows but look equally good scrunched up. The name of the design, Amaka, comes from the Ibo language of Nigeria. The word meaning beautiful, is a shortened form of the popular girl’s name, Chiamaka.
Your yarn pack includes 5 skeins of Milarrochy Tweed and a complimentary KDD wee project bag. You'll also need a copy of the Amaka pattern from our Warm Hands collection.
