This pattern is knitted in the round with stranded colourwork and picked up stitches. These mittens will keep your hands warm and toasty all winter long. Both Cornish Tin and Gotland DK yarns have a slight halo after blocking. This halo of fibres traps warm air making the Azurite Mittens extra snug. The diamond pattern reminds us of the geometric structures found in copper ore, so it seems like a perfect match for our limited edition Cornish Tin.
