Meet Lupine Knitter Margaret Masessa
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
