The fall Knitscene is out – Axiomatic Mitts!!

My Axiomatic Mitts are published!!

I actually made these up a while ago, because I found a lonely skein of lime green Manos del Uruguay at my local yarn store just begging to be brought home. But what can you do with 1 skein of thick-and-thin Aran weight yarn?

Apparently, gauntlets.

The pattern can look a little scary, because there is no standard repeat to condense things – it’s an all over pattern. But once one sees how the construction works (every other round, twist the rib stitches towards the edge in the bottom triangle, or away from it at the top), it should go fast. I think I had the second pair done in a week and a half!

What I love about these is the free palm. Not sure about anyone else, but my palms start sweating well before my fingers warm up. These allow me to stay toasty without worry, and without the fabric getting it the way of doing things – like eating!

Ravelry pattern page link here. One skein of Manos del Uruguay, or similar skein length of aran weight yarn, 5.5mm (US 9) needles and optional 5.5mm (I) crochet hook for edging and loop.

Hope you like!
