I just love these mitts. The colour is fantastic although it’s really hard for me to capture. I took pictures of them outside today (between the showers!) but just can’t seem to do the shade any justice. I used Tivoli New Celtic Aran Wool which is soft and lovely and really stretchy….I had a chap with large hands trying them on yesterday and they stretched with no problems. The cable pattern worked like a dream and I really love the way that the cables are framed by the two long bars of cables either side.
The main part of the mitten is reverse stocking stitch which makes it quick to knit. It is contrasted with the moss stitch (known as seed stitch to my North American friends) within the large cables. I took copious notes as I knitted so I shall try my best to get the pattern up shortly.
