”I have a real soft spot for twisted stitches. With a sleight of hand, you can turn the simplicity of a knit stitch into something ornamental and three dimensional. In this design, the simple cabled motif on the back of the mittens gives them a special handcrafted feel. Holding two strands of Loft together will create a fabric with great elasticity and stitch definition.” – Michele Wang


  • Mittens are worked circularly from the bottom up.
  • The cuff is worked first and bound off. Stitches are then picked up from this edge to create a “bracelet” selvedge cuff detail.
  • Thumb is shaped with a side gore.

Approximately 260 yards of fingering weight wool yarn, held double throughout
1 skein of Brooklyn Tweed Loft (100% American Targhee-Columbia Wool; 275 yards/50g)
