Balsam Mitts


Pattern Information

Balsam Mitts
Designed by Rachel Brockman

PATTERN NOTES
These sleek mitts are designed with equal parts function and aesthetics in mind. The slipped ribbing pattern is very stretchy, giving a flattering and fitted look. The central slipped stitch of each rib column adds a subtle, pleasing detail, while also making for a resilient fabric. The thumb gusset is elegant in its restraint, growing into a reverse stockinette insert that highlights the surrounding rib columns. The highlight of this project is the central Twisted Panel which is so delicate looking, and fun to work, too!

These mitts are knit in the round from the bottom-up. In this pattern, all slipped stitches are worked purlwise with yarn held back.
