Disrupted Triangle Mitts

  • A woman wearing a pair of fingerless mitts. Her arms are crossed at the wrist and the mitts feature a triangle motif.
  • A pair of palms outstretched wearing a pair of mitts featuring a triangle motif.

An overall triangle pattern gives way to a disruption of triangles-within-triangles, creating a mostly straightforward knit with the occasional variation in motif designed to keep you on your toes.

This pattern is for you if… You like subtle surprises in your overall motifs, you’re looking for an extra layer of warmth on still-chilly spring mornings, or you’d love to showcase a variegated, tonal or self-striping yarn.

Move along if… You’re looking for a stitch motif that you don’t have to pay much attention to, you prefer non-triangle shapes.
