Caught Red Handed
The knitted mittens are finished off with a crocheted border that shows up the best in this outdoor shot. The color is more accurate in the other two photos.
Pattern: Cable Mittens from Piecework Jan/Feb 2006
Yarn: fingering weight lambswool recycled from a J. Crew sweater (the pattern called for worsted weight)
Needles: Inox 2.5 mm. (U. S. size 1 1/2) dpns; small crochet hook
Size: Child's large
Notes: My favorite recycled yarn comes from J. Crew lambswool sweaters. I'll definitely make these again, probably in other weights of yarn. My daughter loves them so I gave them to her.
