Fiber Dreams 74 Stream PDF
Looking at these mitts, you can tell why this pattern is entitled "Stream". The deep blue colors ripple down the hand and the lacy stitch pattern looks like a gently moving current. These mitts are knit in the round. The stitch pattern is worked on the back of the mitt, while the rest is worked in twisted rib, which allows for a snug and comfy fit. These mitts are a beautiful accompaniment to the Lazy River cowl pattern by Fiber Dreams.
