Pattern: Oak Grove by Alana Dakos
Yarn: Cody, Mountain Meadows. Dark Grey. 1 skein, 200 yards.
Needles: US 3
Mods: A few. For the bind-off on the thumbs and around the top I used the tubular cast-off because it is beautiful, simple, and stretchy. I also flipped the final cable twist at the top of arch for one mitt so that they were a mirror image of each other. I also picked up 4 stitches and knit a garter stitch strap to help pull the fabric tight across the wrist.
|My straps are a little uneven. Oh well.|
It is my understanding that Cody is available in 4 natural colors; natural white, light grey, medium grey, dark grey. There are also gorgeous kettle dyed colors that will be coming into the shop sometime soon. It pains me that I am not buying yarn until April 2012 - I really want to try some colorwork with this beautiful yarn that comes from sheep raised in Wyoming.
