52 Craft Projects // Horseshoe Cable Mittens
Pattern: Bella's Mittens by Marielle Henault
Yarn Used: Malabrigo Chunky (2 skeins of 'Tuareg')
Needles: 6mm DPNs
Modifications: I started on row 16 (CO 39 stitches) for a [somewhat] shorter version.
This was my first time working with Malabrigo yarn and I'm addicted! It's soo soft! It has a beautiful texture and the stitch definition is awesome. Have I mentioned that it's soft? It's really soft. This won't be the last time working with this yarn :)
I've knitted these mittens before - several times. They were among the first projects I knitted without much help. They're great for beginners because they look fancy yet they are very simple to knit and the pattern is very intuitive and you actually see mistakes as they happen, so you can prevent them :)
I might add a thin lining one day... I'm dreaming of a cashmere-blend inner mitten ;)
This is project #2 of 52 craft projects I'm attempting to complete in 2013.
