Semi-Dashing Mitts


Semi-Dashing Mitts

Finally finished the fingerless mitts for Dirk. They are based on the "Dashing" pattern from Knitty.com; the cables are not the same as how the pattern is written.

When making the first mitt I wasn't really reading that pattern so I did not offset the second cable. (oops), so I just made the second mitt to match!

The yarn is Rowan Tweed which was leftover from my Central Park Hoodie sweater. Though this yarn is splity, I love how it feels in the finished project.

My standard plain pattern with ribbed legs.

They look super baggy in the photo because they are on my sock blockers for my small feet! This is an inexpensive superwash yarn from Hobby Lobby that I picked up on impulse. It worked up very nice and I hope it holds up well to wear.
