The Cannon Beach Mitts are one of five patterns in Independent Fabrication, a collection of accessory patterns knit in small-batch yarns. The eBook is available on Ravelry, or you can purchase a print book + eBook bundle at our website, tightlyknitdesigns.com.

Designed in Alpenglow Yarns’ sport-weight Three Little Corries, these heavily textured mitts are the lightest pieces in this collection. A lighter-weight yarn keeps the allover cable-and-seed-stitch pattern from getting in your way, while Alpenglow’s dramatic, deeply saturated colorways make these mitts pop, even from a distance. Garter stitch trims make for a neat, modern finish. Satisfying to work and easy to wear, ready to dress up or down, these mitts are perfect forfall’s cool nights and misty mornings.
