Kicking Horse Mittens
If you’ve ever seen a Warren Miller movie or been to the ski hill on an epic powder day you have probably seen those hourglass tracks made by those lucky skiers that got out there when it was still fresh. I’ve created a cable that mimics those tracks, another one reminiscent of a lone downhiller “shreddin’ the gnar” as well as one of a skier who couldn’t be bothered to turn at all. I’ve gathered these cables together and smattered them all over some wintery patterns I’m calling the Powder Day Collection. Each pattern is named after one of my favourite powder day ski
The slipped stitches, cables, and thick yarn of these mittens combine to give your hands great insulation on a cold day. The pattern is written from the top down to accommodate various row gauges and hand lengths.
I have recommended an Aran weight yarn and a worsted weight yarn. Mittens made with the Aran yarn will result in a very dense, warm fabric. Those using worsted yarn will be have a looser fabric and more drape.
