Malabrigo Quickies Friendship Mitts
It’s October, so that means that we are in prime knitting season! So many Fiber Festivals and events are right around the corner, and we also have a fun Quickies project perfect for the season!
Designer Moira Engel brings us Friendship Gloves worked in Malabrigo Finito.
Moira says: A set of twin pre-teen girls who are very dear to my heart asked me to make them gloves that look like friendship bracelets. I had absolutely no idea, but the idea percolated for a while and the Latvian Braid kept invading my brain. So these are my Friendship Gloves, inspired by friendship bracelets. The color-work is mosaic, which I feel is a fun and magical way to work in color. 1 skein of each colour will complete both versions.
I just love how she has provided a warm, cozy, modern twist on friendship bracelets, don’t you? I’m also in love with how she has used the Latvian Braid to perfectly decorate this piece.
