Fiber Dreams 56 Alpenhorn PDF
Fiber Dreams Alpenhorn mitts are based on old twisted stitch motifs from Austria. These fingerless mitts are a combination of tulips and staggered chains of windows. Mitts are knit in the round from the cuff toward the fingers, widening for a thumb gusset, then brought back together at the fingers. Stitch patterns are both charted and written out.
