Ideal for milder weather, these lovely mitts make a great gift. Worked in eyelet-rib and reverse stocking stitch, they are much simpler and quicker to work than mini-cables but look just as complex.
The mitts are worked flat with a tiny amount of seam cleverly hidden in a furrow of rib. A decorative line of eyelet-rib borders the thumbhole opening. If you are a novice, I give options to avoid the two trickiest stitches in the pattern (and they're not that tricky) since this is meant to be fun to knit!
To make a lovely set for yourself or as a gift, you can make a [Helios Headband] with the remainder of the second ball. If you wish to do this and you are making size L mitts, please take extra care that you are knitting to gauge since there will only be a few grams of yarn leftover. Buy the patterns together in [Helios Knits]
