Back Roads Mitts

Back Roads Mitts
Need a pair of fingerless mitts to go with your Back Roads Hat? Here they are! Back Roads Mitts feature the same, lovely textural pattern as the Back Roads Hat as well as a longer cabled cuff to keep out the drafts.

Back Roads MittsBack Roads Mitts fit hand sizes of approx 6.5, 7.5, 8.5” (16.5, 19.1, 21.6 cm) palm circumference. 

This downloadable, PDF pattern has been professionally tech edited and test knit to reduce the potential for error. The stitch patterns are charted, but the pattern features complete written line by line instructions so the ability to read a chart is not necessary to work this pattern.

Our sample was knit using one 4 oz/110 gr (200 yds/183 m) skein of Madelinetosh Vintage (100% superwash merino wool) in the Badlands colorway.

Back Roads Mitts
So, although Robert Frost had to choose between one road or the other, there is no need to choose between hat or mitts - you can have BOTH for your adventuring!

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,                 
And sorry I could not travel both                 
And be one traveler, long I stood                 
And looked down one as far as I could                 
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
            --Robert Frost (1874-1963), The Road Not Taken
