Åsa Tysk for donating her gorgeous mitten pattern to p/hop! These aran weight mittens will knit up in no time, with the stylish cables adding interest and warmth, perfect for last minute gift knitting or a treat for yourself. Here’s Åsa’s inspiration for her pattern:
“The Intertwined mittens were born out of two old, balls of wool and a scrap of mohair. Bored with my other knitting projects I played with them a bit and out came cables in a way I liked. In my imagination I saw them covering a big, wintry sweater, quite a stretch for the small amount of yarn I had, so I settled for handwear. I had no intention of making a pattern as I have never really written one before but then a Ravelry group I had joined had a big charity knit off and a team was formed in favour of p/hop. Learning that p/hop was dedicated to raise money for Medécins sans frontiers, I felt I had to contribute! So I wrote down instructions for the mittens and with great help from my teammates they became this pattern. I’m really glad to be doing this for p/hop and MSF!”
