Gallus Mittens

Pattern: Gallus by Kirsten Kapur

Yarn: Handmaiden Fine Yarn Sea Silk in Paris

Needles: 2mm / US 0 circular (Magic loop method used)

These mittens are the first mittens I’ve ever knitted. I was never sure if I’d like wearing mittens. I generally prefer the separation of fingers afforded by gloves. But I wanted to try something new and there are so many fun mittens patterns out there that I wanted to indulge in some mitten knitting. Also, mittens are near instant gratification.

I knitted these for the most part while I was on holiday in La Rochelle, France. These lovely mittens enjoyed the ambiance of many a cafe. I sipped tea (I’m not a fan of coffee but I love cafes) while the boyfriend enjoyed his cafe au lait. It was a magical holiday and these mittens will always remind me of that experience.
