Inspiration for the Evergrey Mitts came from the silver needles of a blue spruce (Picea pungens). The cuffs are worked using a lace-and-twisted-stitch rib that reminded me of a forest floor covered with fallen needles. The back of the hand is adorned with a cabled spruce motif encased in a medallion of twisted stitches.
The mitts are worked in the round cuff up. Left and right mitts can be worked two-at-a-time. Both written and charted instructions are given for the stitch patterns.
