These mitts are designed to showcase the beauty of silk. Known for its beautiful appearance and used before the introduction of synthetics, it is relatively warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Knitting with pure silk yarn presents a challenge though, and effective designs counterbalance the fiber’s inelastic and slippery characteristics with stitch selection.
Knit in the round, this design uses a variation of a “cabled horizontal rib” to create elasticity (memory). The result is a reversible mitt with a decorative side and a simple side.
Kit includes patttern & Laines du Nord Mulberry Silk (DK weight, 100% Silk, 136 yards/50 grams):
Tips for silk are included at the end of the pattern.
