Transverse Mitts

 

DESIGNED BY BETH NIELSEN

These graphic mitts are a great introduction to tapestry crochet, a more advanced crochet technique. In tapestry crochet, multiple colors or yarn are switched back and forth to create colorful motifs with a woven look. Make these mitts with contrasting colors for a bold pattern or tonal or neutral hues for a more subtle effect. Either way, they’re a modern piece that’s fun to make and to wear.
