Vertigo are a pair of stranded colorwork mittens inspired by the 1958 psychological thriller that portrays a character’s descent into madness… or is it all just a deceitfully schemed plot?
Scenes from this classic movie directed by the Master of Suspense, Sir Alfred Hitchcock, are depicted in these colorwork mittens. Pick two colors of (light) fingering-weight yarn with a good amount of contrast between them. Black and white is a classic combination but you don’t have to stick with neutrals.
The pattern comes in three sizes: 66, 70, or 74 sts. Right and left mittens are worked from separate colorwork charts. The pattern contains long floats; using the Ladderback Jacquard technique is recommended but not essential.
This pair of colorwork mittens was originally released as a mystery knit-along in nine clues in October 2020.
