I loved my Twisted Love socks so much, and I was having so much fun with the cables, I couldn’t resist creating some mitts to go with them. Kristi and I were even plotting a cowl, tam, scarf, neckwarmer, stocking cap, and and and . . . whew! I need to slow down. We’ll just start with some socks and mitts.
The Twisted Love mitts are my homage to traditional twisted stitches. I loved the idea of presenting hearts in twisted stitches. These mitts are a match for my Twisted Love socks. I also decided to carry the patterning up the palm, because I just love the twisted stitches. As it can be hairy to follow multiple charts, I have presented the charts in two different formats to help you complete your Twisted Love mitts.
