Snakes and Ladders dates back to ancient India. It’s a game rooted in luck and designed to teach a moral lesson symbolising a life’s journey. The snakes (cables) represent vices and ladders (garter stitch) represent virtues.

Whilst these simple accessories, these mitts and matching hat, won’t teach you life lessons, they are an easy knit that mimicks the game’s simplicity, though the twist of the cables adds a touch of complexity.
