To complete the collection of Lydie accessories, a pair of mittens was necessary! Knitted in the round from the wrist to the fingers, the mittens feature the twisted pattern that characterizes all Lydie accessories. After knitting the wrist in 2×2 ribbing, the thumb is formed by a set of increases that create the gusset, and then the stitches are placed on hold while finishing the glove in the round. Finally, the thumb is created by knitting a few rounds. Warm and practical, mittens add a touch to any winter outfit, especially when coordinated with the other Lydie accessories.
