Last year my guild, the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) Knitters Guild, studied stranded knitting. We did a Knit-A-Long of Kate Gagnon Osborn’s Opus Spicatum Beret. Opus Spicatum is a Latin term for a type of masonry used in Roman and Medieval times. It forms a herringbone pattern just like her beret. After I knitted her hat I wanted mitts to match it and this pattern is the result. If you’d like to knit them both, you can find her free pattern on Ravelry.
