What appears to be a complicated colorwork technique is really just a simple slip stitch cable pattern on these stretchy, easy to knit Orchid Mitts. You only have to work with one color at a time and the mitts are knit flat, leaving an opening for the thumb in the seam. It’s a great way to try out our lovely new Northampton Sport.
