Soft Linen

Digitalis Mitts in Soft Linen designed by Alegria DaSilva are light and lacy for summer days and the alpaca makes them warm enough for cool evenings.  This is a free pattern available from Classic Elite Yarns and only uses one ball of Soft Linen!

 We tried out the pattern and loved it.  A quick and fun lace pattern runs along the top of the mitt and the palm in stockinette.  They feel wonderful on too!  We knit ours in color Thistle.

 The Yarn
Classic Elite Yarns, Soft Linen is the perfect yarn for warmer days and soft, cool nights. The alpaca makes a beautiful halo, the linen gives it a crisp and firm hand and the wool provides stability and its own level of softness.
 Knits up as a dk weight yarn with 5 1/2 sts/ in on a US #5 needle.

 From top to bottom: Inca Gold, Linen and Antique White
