Flourette

A floret is a small flower, or one of the small flowers in a cluster. I much prefer the old English spelling, “flourette,” which is a diminutive of the word flur, meaning flower.

Mitts are worked in the round. They start with a delicately waving edge that moves into a field of flower clusters. Both hand and thumb end with an i-cord bind off.

Coordinates with Cluster cowl. Also available with Cluster in Inflorescence.
