|Hopi Mitten... Prototype 1|
A few weeks ago I posted some "research"; a mitten project that I had knitted in order to learn how mittens are made. Here is my interpretation of the Norwegian mitten. I was inspired by patterns of the southwest as well as some needs for practicality. I thought that it would be more practical to have a ribbed cuff rather than the flared open cuff as in the traditional pattern. I also did not design the top of the mitten into a strict point. Instead I rounded it a bit.
I learned a lot from this prototype. I am elongating the next version to a more defined point (but not too pointy). I'm using a less fuzzy yarn, and possibly re-designing the thumb pattern...
