Inspired by Audrey Hepburn, Fifth Avenue was an exclusive design for the Red Riding Hood Yarns “Ladies of Luxe” yarn club.
Audrey Hepburn is perhaps best known for her acting career – particularly for her role as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s – but the reason I chose her as my inspiration was her selfless humanitarian work, particularly in her role as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. Audrey to me was a true lady of luxury - a style icon with a generous and giving spirit.
These long fingerless mitts are knit in luxurious silk blend yarn and feature an exquisite lace panel and pretty cable detailing, perfect for that special night out (or a stroll down Fifth Avenue).
Fifth Avenue mitts are knit in the round in DK/8ply yarn. The suggested yarn is 50% silk which give a lovely sheen and great stitch definition. You will need most of a 100g/220m skein.
