Yarn & Pattern Match #2

Posted on


Hmm, spring seems to have been put on hold for a little while here in the UK.  We have had some bitter days and nights recently.  I’m also too stubborn to bring out the winter gloves again – I WANT SPRING – so I have been using my long fingerless mitts a lot.  They are a godsend when wearing a ¾ sleeved top and the cold air creeps up the sleeves of the jacket, brrr!

With that in mind, I was searching Ravelry for fingerless mittens using Sport weight / 5ply yarn as it would knit up quickly but be a bit toastier than Sock / 4ply.

There is one pattern in particular I have been eyeing, and it’s the Elger Long Fingerless Mitts by Linda Lehman.  If you like cables you will LOVE these mitts!

I can easily imagine them in my Sport with Silk in the colourway Nautilus.

Soft and luxurious with a wonderful stitch definition.  The BFL and Nylon gives it strength while the silk adds a beautiful sheen and touch of luxury.
The Sport w Silk can easily be substituted for the Sport in 100% BFL which currently is only available in my Etsy Shop.
