New Pattern: Frost


From Interweave Knits:

The Frost Mittens, inspired by classic Scandinavian motifs, feature a large Nordic star, bands of colorwork, and an optional lining for extra warmth. Worked in Icelandic Léttlopi, these mittens will keep your fingers toasty from the winter solstice to the spring equinox.

These mittens are worked from the cuff up with thumb gussets. The outer mitten is worked first, then stitches are picked up around the inside of the cuff and the lining is worked in the opposite direction. Once completed, the lining is tucked into the outer mitten.
