Tilde - Fingerless Mittens

The Tilde Mittens are inspired by the interaction of small pattern elements and different textures. The contrasting bobbles in a striking fluffy yellow bring a smile to your face. They are framed by a simple cable. The tilde mittens are a simple pattern with a fun detail. The bobbles are a great way to highlight even the tiniest amounts of leftover yarn.

You will start this project at the lower cuff, working your way towards the fingertips. A contrasting yarn will be used for the knitted bobbles. The contrasting yarn is carried upwards on the inside of the  mittens.  It can be helpful to wind a small amount of contrast yarn onto a paper card and only bring it out from the inside of your mitten when making the bobble.
