I am excited to share my newest pattern with you: Balefire Mitts. I really had fun designing these, since the idea was to integrate the thumb gusset into the all-over pattern that 'spirals' around the mitten. And look - it worked. :)
The thumb gusset in plain Stockinette stitch emerges neatly from the all-over spiraling textured pattern. The mittens are knitted from the cuff to the top and they are mirror images of each other, i. e. the stripes spiral in different directions. It is completely up to the wearer, whether to 'hide' the distinctive thumb gusset on the palm of the hand or as an eye-catching feature at the back of the hand.
