|Water Lilies (1906) by Claude Monet|
But you can't blame him for wanting to capture those colors! The gals at Dream in Color felt the same way, so Claude's colorful garden was their inspiration for the October Dream Club.
The October Dream Club pattern is a fingerless mitt, and you can choose between a crochet or a knit version.

The knit version is called En Plein Air. En Plein Air is a French expression that means "in the open air" and refers to standing outside to paint the landscape in front of you, a favorite style of Monet's. The En Plein Air mitts are ready for any outdoor activity. The longer section of ribbing at the wrist insures that they will not come untucked from your coat sleeves. They also have subtle shaping on the hand to create a great fit, plus a decorative button/strap closure.
