New Pattern Release! These fingerless mitts are knitted up in Mountain Colors Perspectives Twizzle. This worsted weight yarn is 85% merino, 15% silk – and the silk is a strand plied with the wool, rather than blended with it. The silk takes dyes differently than wool, so the plied yarn has a great marled effect to it.
Snooker Mitts feature a seed stitch cuff and simple buttonhole thumb. The main body of the mitt is worked in a pattern that mixes seed stitch with slipped stitches, which I really like – the purl stitches really sparkle in the Twizzle yarn.
There are three sizes, and although I personally have small hands, I knit up the Large size to make sure there would be enough yarn!
Looking for a little project to kick start your fall knitting? Join us in the Mountain Colors Ravelry Group for a knitalong starting August 1! You can of course start earlier if you want, the pattern is available now.
The knitalong will run from August 1-22 in the Mountain Colors group, and there are prizes! Check out the KAL thread for more details.
