Ysolda Mitbringsel PDF
In German a mitbringsel is a small gift brought by a guest or someone returning from a journey. Avoid showing up empty handed and keep your recipients hands warm with these fingerless mitts - perfect for gardening, cycling or typing. They take just a small amount of yarn, ideal for using up scraps. The simple stranded colorwork pattern on Mitbringsel is closer to traditional Icelandic patterns than Fair Isle with shaping worked into the pattern and short repeats to avoid finger-catching floats. Glove fingers aren't anyone’s idea of fun, but these use a neat I-cord trick that avoids working tiny tubes in the round and means you can knit four fingers at once.
