Pattern Details

Barlow is a fitted, fingerless mitt pattern characterized by a twisted cable winding around the forearm and along the top of the hand. Reminiscent of an old wagon trail winding through valleys and mountains, the cable is cleverly manipulated by simple increases and decreases along each side. Because of the shifting stitches of the spiraling cable, these mitts are most easily knit in the round, with the "Magic Loop" method. Lightweight but warm, Barlow is sure to become a favorite accessory when following your own adventure trail! Measurements to fit: small hand,(med/lrg hand): circumference of palm: 7 1/2", (8") circumference of wrist: 6", (7") from wrist to BO edge of mitt: 4", (4 1/2") from CO edge of mitt to BO edge of mitt: 11", (12") Materials: 230-300 yrds of 80% merino /10% nylon /10% cashmere, fingering weight yarn Pattern includes helpful photos, charts and instructions including notes on all the techniques described.
