Knitting, SweetGeorgia

Duplin Mitts by Brenda Patipa

“I love the woven texture and the symmetry in this design.  I am not your “off one shoulder gal”, everything must be balanced.” – Brenda

Sultry cables in our lush Superwash Worsted add captivating elegance to already cozy accessory. Worked from cuff to fingers and using only one skein, these Duplin mitts by Brenda Patipa are a dream for every autumn wardrobe.

These fingerless mitts are worked in the round from the cuff with a thumb gusset. After setting aside the thumb stitches, the rest of the hand is worked in the round. The cable pattern is mirrored on the back of the right and left mitt.
The stitch patterns are both written and charted for every level of knitter.
