Knitting Pattern Release : Galloway Mitts


More mitts!   I designed these for my husband, who wanted a really snug fitting pair of mitts.  He can even play his mandolin or guitar with these on.  And once I got them finished, I liked them so much, I made a pair for myself in blue!

The yarn is Quince & Co's Tern.  Truly a lovely yarn.  It's warm and soft, but with a lot of strength and a bit of shine.  Nice.  They've got a nice deep garter stitch cuff, which feels snug and comfy.


They were a quick knit...very gratifying!  And who can't use another pair of mitts?
