Staysail Mitts - Titus Version

Staysail Mitts - Titus Version

"Town and country."

Designed by Graeme Knowler-Miller, the orderly lines of individual knit stitches stand out on a field of reverse stockinette (or purls in the stockinette side) and walk on the diagonal up the hands. Knit in the round and reversible, these rustic and pretty mitts offer a great way to play with the wooly plushness of Titus - a unique blend of British wool and UK-grown alpaca. Equally at home in town or country, one skein leaves plenty of yarn for a generous length. You'll be prompted to use a stretchy cast-on - the designer recommends Old Norwegian Cast On (also known as German Twisted Cast On).

You can pick up the Titus Mini Knits pattern book and all of the fabulous colors of Titus below, or go to Baa Ram Ewe Titus for more information about the yarn.  One skein is all you need. (Please note that if you don't see the pattern book below, that means we are temporarily sold out. But we'll have more again soon, so please check back!)
