Colorwork Fingerless Gloves Using Brooklyn Tweed Peerie
They say that if you keep your pulse points warm, you’ll stay warm all over. Our Colorwork Cuffs, Mittens, and Fingerless Gloves prove that theory nicely! Pick a colorwork chart—we adore handsome houndstooth—an edging, and then finish as little cuffs, fingerless gloves (our choice here), or full mittens.
With the beautiful colorwork at the cuffs, take advantage of Brooklyn Tweed Peerie’s deeply saturated shades! This woolly, worsted-spun wonder of a yarn is 100% American merino wool, among Brooklyn Tweed’s softest. Once spun into a strong, fingering-weight strand, Peerie produces precise stitch definition, beautifully crisp textures, and stunning colorwork.
Mittens: Approx. 7"/18cm around x 7½"/19cm long, or desired length.
2 skeins Brooklyn Tweed Peerie (210 yds/192m each): 1 skein in Main Color (MC) and 1 skein in Contrast Color (CC). Our sample is shown in colors Porter (MC) and Muslin (CC).
