Lenticular Mitts Free Knitting Pattern

Reno is lucky enough to have the specific types of air patterns that are perfect for creating lenticular cloud formations. Lenticular clouds are known for their layered, circular, UFO-like shape that often look as if they were stacked on top of one another. On a walk recently I noticed a lenticular cloud formation where the play of light and shadow on the cloud layers inspired me to create these slouchy, color-blocked mitts! This simple mitt pattern, knit in Cascade's Lana d'Oro yarn-- a blend of 50% wool and 50% alpaca, can be done in as many colors as you like. While the color-blocking shown here is classically simple, they could easily be knit all in one color, or a whole rainbow of fun colors! Basic stockinette stitch in-the-round makes this a project suitable for beginning knitters, refreshing skills or that no-brainer simple project for unwinding in the evenings. The pattern is written for double pointed needles but if you prefer other knitting in-the-round techniques please feel free to adapt this pattern to your favorite method. The Lenticular Mitts are the perfect fast knit for year- round gift giving or a fabulous instant gratification project for YOU!
