In celebrating my recent 10-year “knittiversary”, I was struck by how interwoven knitting has become with my life. When I look over my past projects, I immediately recall road trips with family, yarn quests with friends, television series I compulsively knit my way through, soccer practices without end…
These mitts are a shout-out to some favorite things I discovered during that decade of stitching — versatile fingerless mitts, and beautiful cables in a gleaming hand-dyed yarn. In this pair, the cables circle the entire mitt and are mirrored on either hand, making them interchangeable. A pretty and unique thumb gusset blends easily into the pattern. While they are gorgeous in a solid or tonal yarn, they can easily handle some variegation, too. Here’s to many more yarn years ahead!
The sample was knit in Marianated Yarns Playtime DK. A substitute yarn is shown below.
