Sherbet Lemon

Long fingerless mitts featuring a geometric cable pattern: a variation on a traditional pattern of tessellated diamonds arranged so their outlines form a flowing lattice.


    This pattern takes advantage of the crisp stitch definition of the yarn and the light reflecting silk emphasises the strong relief effect and different textures between the sections worked in reverse stockinette and garter stitch. As the elements of the pattern can be easily scaled the thumb shaping is incorporated within the pattern. The allover cuff pattern flows into a single motif on the back of the hand with a coordinating rib pattern on the palms and thumb. Simple decreases incorporated into the stitch pattern create the shaped edge on the cuff.


    To fit approx measurement around knuckles of 7" / 17.5cm - 8½" / 21.25cm with 0 - 1½" / 3.75cm of negative ease.

    When blocked and slightly stretched the length of the mitts is 10¾" / 26cm, and the width across the back of the hand is 3½" / 9cm.
