Modification Monday: Cable and Bobble
Original Pattern: Regina Cable & Bobble Fingerless Mitts
Knitter Extraordinaire: Nicole (Rav ID, blog)
Mods: Adjusted cables to meet at the top of the full mitten, customized the center motif to fit with the decreases at the top, and changed the bobble from a 5 stitch to a 3 stitch bobble. She also lined them for extra warmth. Detailed project notes can be found on her project page.
What Makes This Awesome: These mittens looks gorgeous in their full-mitt guise. I love the smaller bobbles, the elgant cables at the fingertips, and the lining looks so cozy and perfect for blustery winters. It's not always easy to turn fingerless mitts into mittens, particularly when there are cables and design features that make decreasing challenging, but Nicole worked out an elegant solution with the branches and cables. Now that the weather has turned chilly here, I'm craving a cosy pair of mittens just like these!
