This design was commissioned by Fibershed, an organization that supports locally grown fibers. The sample is knitted in Red Creek Farm yarn of Potter Valley, CA. The pattern is designed for both sport and worsted weight yarn. About 110 yards of worsted required at 5 stitches per inch and 170 yards of sport at 7 stitches per inch. The number of pattern repeats is higher for the sport yarn to make the same size mitts.

The mitts take advantage of a reversible cable pattern so that it can be worn “inside” out. The thumb openings are the spaces between cable crossings.
