Sulka Mitts by Caitlin Hunter
The Sulka Mitts pattern by Caitlin Hunter of Boyland Knitworks are rustic mitts, a perfect accessory for chilly mornings at the campfire. The feather design is based on a stitch pattern found on one of the oldest pieces of nalbinding (an early predecessor of knitting) ever found. Imagine women of an ancient era creating the same stitch as you knit these gloves, and feel the thread of history binding us together.
Knit seamlessly in the round, these mitts feature a deceptively easy braid detail and afterthought thumb.
