The Stitches of My Life Designs Erin's Mittens and Mitts PDF
Erin’s Mittens or Mitts by The Stitches of My Life Designs are the perfect things to have ready for walks on brisk fall and winter days. Cuffed with a beautiful cabled band that is finished with a smart decrease and buttonhole, Erin's Mittens and Mitts are the perfect project to show off those special buttons you might have in your collection. The cuffs are long enough to fit inside or outside of a jacket or sweater sleeve. Whichever you prefer, your hands will thank you for this bit of coziness while you’re out in the chilly air! The cabled cuff is knit flat to begin the mitten or mitt, with the stitches for the hand picked up along the side to work in the round to the fingers. Cable pattern is both charted and written out.
