Udoravia Mitts

on hand 2 vertical wide

 

I whipped these babies up when I realized that I have an abundance of scarves, cowls, and bandits while my gloves/mitts stash is lacking entirely. They only take one skein of Quince & Co Finch Heathers even with a knit swatch, so they’re perfect for a one-skein project for yourself or some deserving person with cold hands.

This project gets its name from the word that Greek revivalists wanted to give to Manayunk. If you’ve ever been here, you know that it is an area with lots of twists & turns, so it fit this pattern perfectly. Manayunk also happens to be home to the yarn shop from which I got the yarn. Udoravia means “place by the river”, and you can find Quince & Co. at Hidden River Yarns if you’re ever in the area! This was my first time knitting with any Quince & Co. yarn and it certainly won’t be my last! The hand, the stitch definition, and the yardage are factors to keep me coming back.
