The tiger has been regarded as an auspicious symbol and ruler of the earth.
In Chinese folktales, tigers are a symbol of protection, taking care of the good and killing the evil spirits. Tiger charms are often worn to keep away harm and disease. Babies are given colorfully embroidered “tiger shoes” for protection, and images of tigers are frequently used to decorate children’s clothing and toys.

This is a pattern for a pair mitts or muffatees. These muffatees are worked from the cuff up and in the round, placing thumb sts on holder, working the rest of the palm, and then working the thumb ribbing.

The pattern includes charts so you may choose to make both the same or work reversing the colours for each muffatee.
