  • The Warp & Weft Mitts

    October 01, 2018 2 min read 0 Comments

    The Warp & Weft Mitts is a collaboration between independent knitwear designer Claire Walls aka Flossi and Tangled Yarn. We set Claire the challenge of turning a skein of Nurturing Fibres Supertwist Sock into something beautiful and functional, she didn't let us down and came up with the most beautiful fingerless gloves.

    As the name suggests these fun mitts are reminiscent of woven fabric, the pattern looks complicated but its just knit, purl and slip stitches and what's more they are completely reversible.

    Nurturing Fibres Supertwist Sock is the ideal knitting yarn for Warp & Weft, it's a high twist merino wool which is ethically sourced and hand-dyed in South Africa. We stock 30 colours which include soft chalky pastels, vintage tones and jewel-like colours; our sample is shown in the colour Sea Glass.

    The increased thumb gusset makes sure you get the perfect fit and the pattern has been created so you can make them as long as you like!

    Warp & Weft are worked in the round on dpn’s or you could use a longer circular needle and use magic loop. If you've not knit in the round before this is a great project to start with.

    One skein of Supertwist Sock is enough to knit two pairs of the short mitts, so you can keep a pair for yourself and make a pair for a friend. For the longer version, one skein is also enough.

    The pattern is available as a PDF download from our store and for a limited time we are giving the pattern away free when you purchase a skein of Nurturing Fibres Supertwist Sock. To receive your copy simply add the pattern and your yarn to your shopping cart and use the discount code WARP. The offer ends October 31st.
