The free pattern from My Sister Knits this month is a pair of quick to knit cabled mittens. With a fresh coating of snow on the ground and a chance for more in the ten day forecast there is still time to knit mittens to wear this season! These Laridae Mittens are made from Misti Alpaca’s Tonos Chunky, a bulky alpaca and merino blend yarn in semi-solid colors (Avacado shown here). Knit on US9 double pointed needles they practically fly off the needles (especially if you cable without a cable needle). Laridae Mittens have an asymmetric gusseted thumb with increases occurring only on the palm side for a more anatomical fit.
