pattern by Claire A. Denny

I love handknits for hands, and as a result of all that time spent thinking about, making, and wearing mitts, gloves, and mittens, I’ve got some pretty specific ideas about what makes an ideal pair. I’ve designed these faux-bois mittens with those criteria in mind. Long cuffs, a gusseted thumb, and most importantly: really rad colorwork. I can’t get enough faux woodgrain, especially in an expected material like wool. This bold, graphic design lends itself equally well to funky color combinations or to monochrome. To keep the knitting interesting and play up the organic qualities of the wood grain motif, each mitten features a unique, non-repeating, non-symmetrical design that wraps around from back to palm. You can personalize the carved heart on the left mitten with the letters of your choice or leave it blank.

Worked in a fingering-weight wool/nylon blend, these mittens are practical as well as warm, and despite the small gauge, I’ve always found colorwork knits up surprisingly fast. (Perhaps it’s the fun of seeing more of the design emerge with every row.)
