This project includes design elements that are functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. The cuff takes ribbing to a sculptural level with twisted stitches that provide dimension and a tailored fit. The Valentine Cable and the Inverted Gull Stitch are subtle representations of affection and contrast with the smooth stockinette in the palm area. Fingers move freely underneath a secure stretchy rib construction while thumb placement ensures warmth sans slippage. These mitts are knit in the round from the cuff to the fingers with separate thumb construction that utilizes picked-up-stitches.
