've tried to knit this yarn before but it was stiff and had little give to it. I don't have the ball band so I am not sure what it is but I think it is cotton. But I love the color and the tweed. I added some mohair of the same color that was also in my stash, that softened it. I started looking at a picture but ended up making up my own pattern as I went. I've knit this pattern 4 times and it varies according to the weight of the yarn that I use. Just ribbing and one cable. Add a thumb and you are done. Generally when I knit this I can get 2 half mitts from one skein of yarn.
This lovely capital I is created by typographer & illustrator Jessica Hische. You can see her work at Daily Drop Cap. I love her work. Watch for more of these typographical treats in my posts.
