Meet Lupine Knitter Margaret Masessa

Updated: Dec 15, 2018



People always ask me How Did You Make Those Double Knit Cable Mittens ? So here goes.......

I order my yarn from Bartlett Yarn in Harmony Maine. It comes to me in skeins: I use 2 ply Worsted weight yarn.


I then put it on a Swift to wind into balls,


Now the yarn is ready to knit with on my knitting machine.


Now it is time to put the yarn on my machine


I cast on with scrap yarn and start knitting the tuck design



Finished mitten ready to take off machine



Now to finish the mitten.

I hand close the thumbs and sides of the mitten , hand picking up the one side of the bar of the stitch so you cannot see the seam.


Then I turn the mitten right side out.


Now I put the plain knit part into the cabled part , to create my double knit mitten.



Below are some of my mittens are available on my Artist Page , click here
