Description

In a Fog mitten pattern by Allison O'Mahony
---

Clever and thoughtful design elements make these basic mittens special. The simple Salt and Pepper colourwork pattern is not only dense enough to help block out the wind, but it’s worked over an odd number of stitches in a way that eliminates the jog that usually occurs when knitting stranded colourwork in the round. A thumb gusset provides a great fit, and unique decreases allow the pattern to continue uninterrupted from cuff to tip.

Pair a light solid with a speckled yarn for a subtle, foggy colour contrast, or use two highly contrasting colours for a completely different look. Including instructions for both mittens and fingerless mitts, this is a staple pattern you’ll knit again and again.
