Welcome the latest pattern to the Kelli Slack Designs catalog! The Quick Twisted Mitts are a free pattern knit in worsted weight cotton, though they would easily work up in wool too.
I love a quick pair of mitts and while I don’t usually work in cotton, I couldn’t resist the softness of this yarn. As I often work outside, I wanted some fingerless mitts. Having a pair made of cotton sounded perfect because I could toss them in the washer and dryer with ease. The cables help to draw the fabric in a bit and give the mitts just a little bit of interest. Have no fear though, this pattern would work up just as nicely in wool!
