A sleek fingerless mitt featuring all-over twisted ribbing and a central cable panel reminiscent of little owls, peeking out through the trees. Strigidae is the proper name for an order of owls across North America. The wee saw-whet owl is my favourite.
Keep these handy for indoor comfort all fall and winter long, or outdoor layers in the transitional seasons!
Instructions include a charted pattern for the back of the hand. Knitters should be comfortable working from a chart and working twisted stitches. Pattern instructions are 3 pages long and include tips on working cables without a cable needle.
