These handsome mitts in three sizes (S/M/L) are knit with a dead-simple stitch pattern that makes a subtle, sophisticated fabric. Bright pops of color against a rich, earthy background in the sample version result from mixing a highly variegated hand-dyed yarn with a dark, contrasting solid; a more subtle fabric can be achieved with two solids that are closer in tone. Or use yarns with contrasting characteristics instead, pairing a springy, wooly type with a slippery, shiny type to create a glimmering fabric with a bit more drape. Whatever the yarn choices, these mitts make for wonderfully effortless summer travel knitting with wearable, giftable potential.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yardage requirement.
Mitts are shown in size M (with matching Sweet Tweed Cowl), knit in Bare Naked Wools Stone Soup Fingering yarn, color River Rock and Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock, color Sweet Potato Pone (hand-dyed exclusively for the 2018 Pairings Club)
