Long mitts make the chilliest days okay. Starting at the bottom and working up by way of a glorious cable, the ribbing continues at the top to form a foldover cuff. Instead of a traditional thumb gusset increases are worked in a single column on the palm, creating an elegant curve and allowing the cable pattern to flow smoothly from cuff to thumb.

The pattern is named after Elsie Inglis, a doctor who made equally significant contributions to the Scottish suffrage movement and healthcare for women and children. She established a maternity hospital in Edinburgh. Many years later, babies were still being born in Elsie Inglis’ — and one of those babies was Ysolda herself!

Inglis was originally published in Wool Tribe, the 2016 Edinburgh Yarn Festival Companion.
