Crossing the Bay of Biscay by ferry takes a long time, of course, that translates as a knitting time for a knitter. Grab some leftover sock yarns, easily memorable stitch pattern and before you know, the bay is crossed and a pair of mitts is done! The mitts are worked in the round. The gusset and ribbed pattern on the top of the hand ensures a better fit. The Eyelet Mock Cable Rib pattern is enhanced with slipped stitches to add the impression of ripple waves on the sea. The stitch pattern is charted and written. Separate instructions are given for the right hand, left hand and thumbs. Directions for three sizes are given. Familiarize yourself with a jogless stripes technique for uniform stripes, avoiding a little jog in the colour.
