WIP Wednesday




Last fall I knit these fingerless mitts out of Shibui Sock in the periwinkle color.



I liked them and wore them a fair bit this winter, but I never wrote up the design. I just wasn't happy with the way my i-cord bind-off curled under. It's hard to stop reverse stockinette from curling under like these do. I played with the i-cord bind-off and think I have a version that won't curl.

I also wanted the pattern to include versions with a longer cuff and with fingers (you can't really see in the above photo, but that cuff ends pretty much right inside my jacket). Over the winter I knit this version out of some lovely Knitted Wit Rambouillet fingering in the thistle color.

 
Now I'm working on an updated version of the short sample with no fingers, again in Shibui Sock, this time in the Kiwi color.
