This pattern was instalment three in the Vintage Purls Summer Sock Yarn Club 2012. It is not currently available for public sale.
Kerr is all about texture. I love semi-solid colours in textural stitch patterns, the movement of the knitted surface combined with the subtle shifts in colour give a really rewarding product.
The cuff of Kerr is worked in double moss stitch and trimmed with i-cord, the button hole is worked as part of the i-cord edging. This is a great pattern choice to show off some special buttons. Opt for contrasting and make a statement or choose something more subtle for a polished look.
The hand is worked in linen stitch, the wrong-side texture of which is as beautiful as the right side, so we reverse it to finish the top edge of the mitts. The dense fabric is warm and wind-cheating.
Make the mitt option for Autumn wear and full mittens for when the days are very cold.
