This Beacon Hill Mitts is a quick and easy pattern with a seamless construction. You will find that you can memorize the stitch texture within a couple of repeats!

Inspiration for this scarf came from P.B Ryan’s Gilded Age Boston mystery book series that I adore, that centers around the infamous Beacon Hill area. The garter st reminds me of the uneven cobblestone ground, and the hill-like texture is for all of the hills and row houses that make up Beacon Hill.

Look for Beacon Hill Infinity Scarf to match the mittens.

Pattern Notes
You will work the mitten in the round starting at the cuff. Every time you come to the BOR marker, slide it.

You can find a complete chart for each mitten on the last pg.

The cuff is knit in a twisted 1x1 rib (k1tbl, p1), which is a signature type of rib of KUAS designs…but feel free to knit using a regular untwisted 1x1 rib.
