Ice Time Mittens

Winter is going full force here in Colorado.  And when it gets chilly, and the snow starts flying, nothing beats a warm pair of mitten!  Enter the Ice Time Mittens.

These mittens are knit up in Three Irish Girls Glenhaven Cashmerino Worsted (one of my favorite yarns — so soft and nice to work with) at a very firm gauge.  You don’t want cold air leaking in now, do you?

The cuff mixes twisted stitches with a cable.  The back of the hand is cabled, while the thumb and palm of the hand are worked in stockinette stitch.  (The pattern includes charts for the cable stitches.)  The appeareance is complex, but I think you will be pleasantly surprised when knitting along.  Much easier than it appears!

Hope you love them as much as I do!  (I love them so much that they might have inspired a cardigan pattern…)

Next up…  The new Noro Accessories book.  I am in love!

    Hi, as a fellow engineer I am fascinated by your patterns. Have you thought about teaching a class?

    These look fabulous! Wondering if you will be designing a hat to match?
