Feature Pattern of the Week - Widdybank Mittens

The perfect combination of style & substance for brisk days. Introducing our newest complimentary pattern; Widdybank Mittens by Audrey Koval for Wool & Co. Whether worked up in bold colors or knit with a softer palette, these cute, polka dot mittens are a beautiful mix of traditional and modern color work motifs that make the perfect accessory to any winter outfit.

*Widdybank Mittens, Rauma Tumi, Sample in Black, Light Blue, Storm Grey, White, Dusty Purple

We knit our cozy pair out of Rauma Tumi, a soft, yet sturdy blend of 50% Alpaca, 50% Wool.  To knit the mittens, you will need 1 ball each of five different colors, size US 0 & US 1 double point needles (or needle of choice for small circumference knitting).

The Widdybank Mittens are constructed by first knitting a ribbed cuff that will be folded inside the mitten for extra warmth and insulation. Then a color work cuff with a traditional star motif is worked, followed by the mitten palm and gusseted thumb. Finally, a rounded mitten top is worked to complement the polka dot pattern.

This complimentary pattern is available in store or online.

 

Happy Knitting!
