aran island mittens

aran island mittens

philistine's aran island mittens

Pattern: by Marcia Lewandowski from Folk Mittens

Yarn: Harrisville Designs Aran in Gold, 1 skein

Needles: US 3/3.5mm

These were really fun to knit. The yarn produced a bigger gauge than than called for so I had to modify the pattern by starting the decreases for the mitten tips earlier. I also switched the direction of the cabling on the left mitten so that the cables on the mitten cuffs were going in opposite directions. It seemed snazzier that way. I also added a repeat to the cuffs because the Philistine likes the longer cuff lengths for mittens.
