Helyx Mitts are a quick and fun knit, resulting in a unique accessory that sets you apart from the mainstream.

Inspired by the DNA double helix structure, they form a spiral and wind themselves up, leaving a small slit for the thumb – an unusual construction method that keeps you entertained while knitting. The upper and lower opening are both seamed with an I-cord which provides a polished finish and makes it easy to slip in and out of, while the textured surface shines all over the mitts.

Preparing the spiral, Row 1 (WS) should be Row 1 (RS)
