It’s still mitten weather here and I always tote a pair around with me in my jacket pocket for those foggy mornings when the steering wheel is just too cold! I wanted to supplement my stash of fingerless mittens before the end of those chilly mornings, so I started poking around for a new project.
Capretta is my favorite yarn and Harbor is hands down one of my favorite blues so when I found a skein of it in my stash I couldn’t wait to make something with it! I’d found Simone Van Iderstine’s White Caps Fingerless Gloves in the Knit Picks Pattern Section and thought that would be the perfect, easy mitten pattern to work on over the weekend.
I absolutely love how they turned out! The cable repeat was easy to memorize and I was able to knit these in two days making these the perfect quick project. I was surprised and delighted with the way these cable stitches POP and how soft the fabric is. I can’t wait for the warmer weather to start creeping in, but I’m quite happy to hang on to my new mittens just a little longer while I wait!
