Looking for inspiration in my stash one day, I happened upon two beautiful skeins of yarn that were side by side and appeared to be a match made in stash heaven. The Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky, in Royal Purple, is soft as a dream, and the deep purple accents the layers of color in the Malabrigo Mecha in Lotus, like they were destined to be knit together.

Designed as a companion to my Motley Cowl, these mitts used up the leftover yarn from that pattern; about 3/4 skein of the Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky, and about 1/3 skein of the Malabrigo Mecha.

These warm and cozy mitts knit up quickly on US size 9 needles (5.5 mm), and will keep your wrists toasty warm while leaving your fingers free to keep knitting!

Other great yarns to consider are Kraemer’s Perfection Chunky or Madelinetosh Tosh Chunky.
