What could be better than a crisp and misty fall
morning, with the promise of a warm and sunny
afternoon? Maybe the same with toasty hands in a
pair of new mitts?
The Brickroad Mitts are knit in a mosaic slip stitch
pattern, you only need one color per round and
don’t ever have to carry yarn or catch floats!
The are sized to fit both women and men hands
and are super fun to knit up!
I used a natural woolen spun yarn from Harrisville
designs, but any sturdy (these are mitts after all
and will be getting a lot of use on your hands)
sport or DK weight yarn that gets the right gauge
can be used.
