Another Pair of Mitts from 1855
This spring has been rather chilly so I whipped up a second pair of mitts for myself, in bright white and pale blue Templeton’s H&O Shetland Fleece wool, on 2.25mm/US 1 needles and 2mm/US 0 for the “bracelet.” The pattern is from Godey’s Lady’s Book, Knitted Mitten and Bracelet, Godey’s Lady’s Book and Magazine, Volume 51, August, 1855, pp. 169-170.
For more information about these mitts and their pattern, see my blog post of 24th of November, 2009 (1855 Mitt Revisited.)
As usual, I loved working with this wool!
