Lavender Mitts

With Ravelry still having accessibility “issues” after nearly three months, I’m trying something new with my blog this month, and I got permission from my testers to share their Lus Na Túise projects with you (and where I know them, their yarn choices). It’s becoming a tradition for me to release a mitts pattern in September – this is my fourth year in a row! They also feel like a return to where I started – I get the same feeling every time I go back to twisted rib!

The yarn I chose for this project was Eden Cottage Yarns Hayton 4ply. There’s a couple of reasons why – although it’s mostly just that I like it! The cashmere content makes it really soft and cosy, although it does produce a slight fussiness, and the nylon content adds strength, while the merino is a nice standard base. The yarn has lovely stitch definition which shows of the twisted stitches beautifully.

The pattern works beautifully with most sock/4 ply weight yarns and you can see below that my testers have made them in a wide range of colours and yarns! I’ve added the yarn names and the yardage used where I know them, there are links to those who chose to be identified through their Instagram accounts, and the rest are all their Ravelry usernames!
