First Stranded Mitt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The cuff! And how much easier it was knitting 2-handed once I learned the correct way to do it.

What you will need

  • I wanted to use what was in my stash
  • and I discovered a skein and a half of Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky in a light gray (color 0554
  • lot 279498) and my beautiful skeins of Madelinetosh Magnolia Club yarn for March 2012 called Stargazing
  • a Tosh MO (mohair). Lovely combo! Although the madtosh yarn is slightly denser than the fluffy Cascade. May have affected the final product
  • although being a first time stranded knitter
  • might just be beginner's mistake and needing practice.... Each column of motifs (little square with a dot in the middle) are coming out looking slightly like ribbing. But when I pull on it
  • it evens out. Thought maybe I was pulling too tightly on the strands
  • but when I don't pull as tightly
  • just letting it lay across the back
  • my stitches are loopy and holey.
  • US 7 / 4.5 mm / UK 7
