Angela's Knit Textured Mitts

Hey, it's a Christmas gift that I actually finished! My friend Angela looooves alpaca, and she's more of a crocheter than a knitter, so I thought I'd stitch her some knitted fingerless mitts in her fave fiber.

I normally don't make knitted gifts for friends who knit. I'm not sure why. Maybe I figure that if they really wanted them, they would've already made them? (That's not true at all for me!) But I thought since she doesn't really knit much, she'd be a good candidate for these.

Pattern: Textured Mitts by Hannah Fettig
Yarn: Cascade Pure Alpaca in Magenta and Grey

I love the texture on the mitts because it's so simple (strategically placed purls!) but yet makes such a nice little design.

The yarn is so nice and soft, and the pattern was quick to knit. If you're still thinking about knitted gifts, put these on your list -- or save 'em for next year!

  1. Very pretty! My hands are cold right now so the mitts seem especially cozy :)
