The Ledrada Mitts are knitted with a soft fingering weight yarn.
The contrast is provided by a lustrous viscose/cotton yarn.
The matching shawl is knitted with the same yarns, held double.
Both the upper and lower edges of the Mitts are hemmed in two different ways. A tutorial video shows how both of these hems are knitted: http://youtu.be/bFSBto6ogqE

This is my website: www.innerShelter.net where I have a virtual gallery for my enamelled jewellery and information about my knitting patterns.
