Lexie Mittens (2022LD-7)


DEGEN Collection | Fall 2022

 

Lindsay Degen of DEGEN puts the focus on fit proportion and vibrant color combinations in this playful collection for adults. Each garment or accessory explores a different technique -- including stripes, brioche, zigzags, and more.

So many new techniques in such a small space! Knitting mittens from the fingertips to the cuff will introduce you to Judy's Magic Cast-On, an afterthought thumb, picking up stitches to add a ribbed cuff below a rolled edge, and a sewn bind-off. The fingertips and cuffs make use of our Bocados (25g mini-skeins of Alegria Grande) for maximum color-play.
