You can’t beat Cascade 220 as a workhorse yarn with all it’s lovely colors, but I knew right away I wanted to design a fingering weight version of my Montreal Mitts in something with more refinement, a bit more urban panache.
I am a big fan Spud & Chloë Fine with it’s saturated colors, and hint of sheen from that 20% silk. It has a nice firm twist making it sturdier then you might expect. The fabric has a nice, plump density that is very satisfying, so it came right to mind for Minneapolis Mitts. It has generous yardage, therefore one skein each of three colors will certainly make multiple pairs of mitts.
These work up fast and would make great gifts for your buddies. I picked three of my favorite colors, but I might need to try more combinations for myself!
