Two layers means twice the warmth and twice the style! These mittens, designed by Cambria Washington, have an outer lace mitten that allows the inner stockinette mitten to show through. Both layers are knit using Heritage Silk, a warm and soft blend of superwash Merino wool and silk. They are knit in the round using the two-circular needle method but can be adapted to traditional double point or magic loop methods. The inner mitten is made first and then stitches are picked up at the cuff to work the lacy mitten from cuff to tip. Both written and charted directions are given for the lace pattern. Ribbon can be woven through the eyelets for a pretty final touch. The mittens are sized as woman's small (7-7.5"), medium (8-8.5") and large (9-9.5"). They can be hand washed and blocked to dry.
