These pretty mitts feature a decorative knotted tie which also provides the benefit of an adjustable and perfect fit.
Perfect for gifts!

The knitting begins with the tie, worked flat in reverse stockinette stitch so it naturally curls inward. The ends are tapered for a graceful look.
Stitches are decreased and then joined to work in the round for the main body of the mitts. An unusual but easy garter stitch cable accentuates the top of the mitts, and the body is in garter stitch.

Note: there is a matching hat available. Get the eBook to save money on the set.
