The Wild West: Stranded — Ringtail Mitts

SUNSET CAT-71

The Ringtail mitts let the gorgeous Sunday Knits yarn take center stage.

I wanted to do a coordinating pattern to the Ringtail hat, but with slightly different motifs.

This is a great pattern if you’re new to stranding or if you want to use up some bits of contrasting color yarn.

You have the option of simply working from the wrist cuff down, or using a provisional cast on, working the main body and top cuff of the mitt, then working the wrist cuff from the provisional cast off down so that the top and bottom cuffs match.
