“The knit I wear most is an Aran cardigan made for my mum more than twenty years ago, and it goes with absolutely everything. I built this design around cables that start and stop to create a modern Aran that would be just as wearable.” - Lily Kate France

These generous mittens by France—a 14-year-old high school student and designer—spotlight an exploded linking cable pattern that does indeed appear to start and stop. The teal yarn is called, fittingly “Scrumptious Aran,” a merino/silk blend from Fyberspates/Lantern Moon.
