Plum Creek Mitts
On the banks of Plum Creek, “She heard pa shouting, ‘Jiminy crickets! It’s raining fish-hooks and hammer handles!’” (Laura Ingalls Wilder) Plum Creek is a place where country gals ride horses and picnic in the grass. It is the inspiration for a set of armwarmers that integrate delicate lace onto a sturdy structure. These mitts are a little feminine and a little bit practical too, right at home in Plum Creek.
Skill level: This advanced-beginner pattern is knit in the round. The cuff is knit first, then the lace panel. You’ll need to know how to cast on, knit, purl, increase, decrease, bind off, sew, and follow written instructions.
