Autumn Twist Mitts
Autumn Twist Mitts. Using about 50g of 4ply/fingering weight yarn, these mitts are a good alternative to use that gorgeous skein of 4ply yarn that you were worried might not be hard wearing enough for socks!
Pattern will be available from Friday 25th May by following this link; http://www.ravelry.com/purchase/owl-about-yarn-designs/462959
This is a simple rib design with a twist – literally! My husband and I prefer socks that cling to our feet and so I don’t often knit vanilla socks, there has to be some sort of pattern which will make it more fitted. Of course, the best pattern is a ribbed sock, but I don’t know many knitters who would willingly knit lots of pairs of plain ribbed socks – I would collapse in a petulant, frustrated and bored heap! So I added in this easy cable design just to keep it interesting for the knitter (i.e. me) and in the process I discovered that it made a good looking sock! And so here you have it.
The design takes less than a 100g skein of my sock yarn (400m/437yds) unless you are knitting for very very large feet! My UK size 6 feet require about 70g, as an illustration.
