Antler Mittens

January 4, 2010 at 4:19 pm (Uncategorized)

This past August in Banff my cousin and I were camping out and I was never so cold in my life! As I shivered in my sleeping bag I had dreams of mittens and a scarf and a hat and some wool socks and…… I thought I would start my new cold summer night wardrobe with some warm mittens with a bit of an earthy feel to them.

That’s right, I just can’t get enough of a little stag cable. It matches my scarf and that makes me happy. One of my many New Year’s resolutions is to get out for a few more walks so I thought I would treat myself to some sumptuous mittens for the wintry air on Burnaby mountain in January and for the icy summer nights in the rockies. I used Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Hand Dyes, the colour is a lovely milk chocolaty brown. The stitch definition is great in this yarn, as needed to help the cables stand out.

The mittens fit snug through the cuff with a little increase after the thumb so that your fingers have some room to wiggle around. I realize some may not appreciate a long cuff like I do, so there are instructions to make it a little shorter.

To make these mittens you will need 2 skeins of Blue Sky Alpacas worsted hand dyes and some 5mm double pointed needles.

To purchase this pattern for $5 you can have it instantly through Ravelry here or you can purchase it though paypalhere and a copy of the pattern will be emailed to you.

    I’ve just bought your lovely Antler Mittens pattern through Ravelry. I love using a diagram when I knit. Do you have a diagram for knitting the mittens?
