October Mitten KAL

Oct 3rd

Event Description

Mitten Knittin' in October

We continue the Year of Mittens KAL in October with a new pattern inspired by the dried twig and bud floral decorations that adorn homes in the autumn and winter. The mittens are dense and warm but not too thick. As such, they are perfectly suited for brisk morning walks to school and work before the weather turns frigid and blustery. The color, Buttermere, was chosen for its brightness, which looks great against the ruddy color of falling leaves.

The floral pattern of the mitten is created by 1 x 1 cable crosses that flow into one another and grow into the delicate branches, extending from the basket-patterned cuff. Mini-bobbles form the buds that gather at the tip of each branch. The thumb has a detail of a single branch extending up the thumb, finished with a cluster of mini-bobbles. The basket pattern on the cuff seamlessly aligns with the thumb gusset for a cohesive appearance.

Our KAL meets on two Saturdays a month from 10am-noon.  This month we meet on October 8 and 22, 2016. Call, email or stop in to register!
