We know you don’t want to think of it this way, but the summer is a great time to work on small projects that can be ready to wear before the chilly days of fall return. If you have been curious about the trend of holding a strand of mohair along with another yarn but don’t want to take on something like a sweater, mittens are a good choice. The Ghostwood Mittens have several elements of an engaging project: good design, a simple cable pattern and beautiful yarn, which all come together perfectly.
A strand of lace weight Rowan Kidsilk Haze is held together with a strand of worsted weight Malabrigo Rios to make a pair of lightweight, yet cozy and warm mittens. You’ll be glad to have them when the seasons change.
