Ysolda Teague

Cotton Reel Mittens


These fun, colorful mittens designed by Ysolda Teague can be made either fingerless or with closed tops to keep your fingers warm and toasty. They combine traditional stranded colorwork techniques and shaping with a simple and modern geometric pattern. The cuffs begin with an I-cord edging that creates little loops for hanging or for attaching an optional string because even grown ups can lose their mittens and you put too much work into these for that!
