The Knutr Mitts have a classical, sleek look but with a difference - the knotted twists are a focal point for the Malabrigos Rios yarn. The mitts are knit top down from the knuckles, one at a time, and the pattern is both written and charted. A photo tutorial is included for the knots.
The pattern has been tech edited by KTLV, and test knit.
