The appearance of cyclamen in plant shops is a sure sign that we’re in for cooler weather. These delightful little flowers, a staple in autumn and winter gardens, come in a range of colours from purest white to holiday red, with all the pinks and purples in between.
Cyclamen Mitts is a knitting design inspired by the flowers themselves, standing in groups on straight little stalks.
- Textured flowers are repeated along elegant twisted rib stems.
- Stitch motifs are easy to work and give beautiful results.
- A perfect fit thanks to the super stretchy twisted rib, which wraps right around the palms.
The smallest size of my Cyclamen Mitts uses just 1/3 of a skein of fingering weight yarn…maybe you have some left over from another project? Fingerless mitts are so much quicker to knit than a pair of socks, and they really do make the perfect handmade gift.
The pattern includes both charts and written instructions.Sizes
