Basic Skills Necessary:

  • provisional cast-on, knit, purl, increase, decrease, graft, bind off, pick up stitches

Pattern Description:

Cast a spell to brighten up cooler days with Cantrip, a pair of mitts that evoke the magical allure of the outdoors.

Smooth stockinette is spiced up with a leafy lace pattern that twines around the cuff. Make it
two-toned for a color-blocked look, or use all one color to create a bewitchingly subtle piece.

Knit in a sensual merino/cashmere blend like Bello from The Plucky Knitter, these mitts will be deliciously warm without being bulky.

I designed a matching beanie as well " make sure to cast on both for a great accessory set!
