Balsam Mitts
Designed by Rachel Brockman

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!
