Royal Skillmistress Gauntlets
In Robin Hobb’s 16 book series-within-a-series, Nettle Farseer, daughter of Prince FitzChivalry Farseer, balks at the idea of being queen should her cousin, Prince Dutiful, meet an untimely demise. Nettle prefers her life on a farm, training and riding horses, to her life as the Royal Skillmistress with its fancy gowns and political intrigue at court. These mitts are fancy enough for court, but with the sturdiness to ride in a Royal Hunt with the King’s guard.
For extra warmth during a long ride, knit the matching Royal Skillmistress Cowl.
