Sweet and elegant mitts for those chilly days

The Lyø Mitts are quick and fun to make using a mix of twisted stitches, ribbing and popcorn stitch. On the front of the mitts you find a delicate flower motif and on the back long lines of twisted ribbing.
Lyø is a small island close to where I grew up and where I used to sail to with my family during the summer.
The mitts have a snug fit and take up less than one 50 gram skein of Tukuwool Sock yarn.
