Meaning “earth” in Scottish Gaelic, Talamh is a simple but fun fingerless mitts pattern with a braid pattern running up the outside of each hand. These mitts were inspired by the yarn. The colourway, Ivy, evoked this beautiful braid pattern that climbs up the mitt from cuff to cuff. The first of my Elemental Mitts, Talamh symbolises life and growth! This fingerless mitts pattern is a really quick and fun make – perfect for yourself or a gift for someone special!
The pattern is fully written instructions and also includes a photo tutorial for a super stretchy cast-on called the Estonian Cast-On for the bottom of the glove and the backward loop cast-on. The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern, and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos. These additional techniques are used: picking up stitches.
