Araluen Fingerless Mitts
Chilly nights spent in front of a blazing wood fire with its crackled wood and twisted flames inspired these warm fingerless mitts.
A twisted rib variation is used for the cuff which smoothly transitions into the curved rib textured pattern that is mirrored on the opposite hand for symmetry before evolving into the ribbed finger cuff.
The mitts are worked in the round, from the wrist cuff up and would work well in solid, semi-solid and variegated yarn. They were designed to match the Araluen Hat and Araluen Cowl.
