Anemoi Mittens


Lovely pattern and fun to work. The pattern is to be found on Eunny Jang’s blog. The pattern occasionally took some guesswork and interpretation, but as is usual with this designer, the finished work is quite nice. I particularly like how DSCN0403 the thumb is in an anatomically correct position. One of my serious gripes about many other mitten pattern is that they either position the thumb right on the side seam, so the pattern on the back of the hand gets pulled around, or the thumb is placed flush on the palm, which can be uncomfortable and again distorts how the pattern sits on the hand.

I worked these in Regia 4-ply sock yarn, so they should hold up well and are machine washable! I’ve still got just over a skein of each color, so I’m sure that at some point in the future I’ll work something else in lavender and chocolate brown. The mittens are a little long, so I might try re-blocking them before I give them to the intended recipient.

Onward, to more mittens!
