Caru — Ysolda


Fingerless mitts worked from the bottom up featuring a fun non-repeating cable pattern. The cables flow into the two by two rib worked at either end, and which continues up the thumbs. Shaping for the thumbs is worked using my favourite method of increasing only on the palm side, which creates a comfortable fit and an architectural line that mimics the anatomy of the hand. The cables are mirrored on each hand, and create a new pattern when laid next to each other. They were loosely inspired by some of the cables in Norah Gaughan’s excellent Knitted Cable Sourcebook, and the charts also use the smart and easy to follow method of shading purl stitches used in the book.
