Issue 480 • Liberty Wool Garter Mittens
Simple and squishy garter stitch makes great fabric for mittens and with Liberty Wool you get both the warmth of wool and machine washability. Combining garter stitch with washable Liberty Wool makes these mittens a trifecta winner! Work in two row stripes with solid colors or use a printed colorway and let the yarn do the striping for you. By knitting flat, you can match the stripes exactly, without jogs, when you sew the seams.
