The Astor Place Mitts pattern was just released by Kirsten Kapur as part of the Through The Loops 10th Anniversary Collection. The mitts were designed to make the most of the deliciously slubby, tweedy texture of Berroco Artisan, a worsted weight wool/silk blend workhorse yarn. From Kirsten: “I adored Artisan from the moment you put a skein of it in my hands…It worked up beautifully, and the tweedy texture gives the design a lot of extra surface interest.”
The pattern is available in three sizes with finished measurements: 6 (6.75, 7.5)” (relaxed circumference) and 7 (8, 9)” long, meant to be worn with 1–3″ of negative ease. Shown in size S. One pair of mitts takes 123–200 yards (112–183 m) of Berroco Artisan.
The Astor Place Mitts are one of 10 patterns available in the Through the Loops 10 Years collection. The pattern will not be available separately until the end of the year. But Berroco has a special exclusive—one lucky reader of the blog will win two skeins of Artisan (enough to make the mitts in any size) and a PDF of the Astor Place Mitts pattern from Kirsten.
