The inspiration for these charming mitts came from Lifelong Yarn’s Yarrow 4ply. This yarn combines the strength and longevity of the Scottish Blackface fleece with the softness and drape of Blue Faced Leicester wool. Seeded columns of rib create a structured cuff and keep the mitts securely in place. A sycamore eyelet lace pattern decorates the back of the mitt, while smooth stocking stitch makes for a practical and warm palm. A combination of strength and softness!
