Stone Hollow mittens
These mittens are meant to be worn! Long densely cabled backs keep out the cold, a brioche seed stitch adds a cushy grip to the palms, thumbs are stockinette for flexibility, and the thumb shaping is part welt part flap for a comfortable, excellent fit.
Choose to knit the medium-length version - well past the wrist, or the longer, fifteen-inch version. Add an optional Latvian braid to the cuffs for a tidy finish (shown on medium mitten).
Size: Pattern includes instructions for both medium and long mittens (instructions for long mittens in parentheses). Palm circumference is 7". Arm circumference is 8.5 (10)". Hand length is 7.5". Cuff length is 4.5 (7.5)".
Techniques used: Reading charts, cables, cable decreases, slip-stitch or brioche, latvian braid (optional). All techniques are explained.
