FO: Fiddlehead Mittens

Finished! I love these! As soon as Adrian makes the pattern available, you must all make a pair. I test knit these for her in a commercially available yarn, Berrocco’s, Ultra Alpaca Light. Which is lovely, just like it’s heavier version, Ultra Alpaca, which I used to knit my Aftur Sweater, except it doesn’t come in as many colors, but we can hope!
I used Kidsilk Haze for the lining, held doubled, on US 3 needles, and people it is SO soft and SO fluffy, I want to knit a cocoon of it and hibernate until spring.

My favorite thing is the way it lays inside the mitten, a lovely peek of a perfect limey green.

Some more specs:

Pattern: Fiddlehead Mittens (of course!) by Adrian Bizilia of Hello Yarn.
Yarn: Berrocco’s Ultra Alpaca Light, The Main Color is 4281, the contrast colors are, beginning from the wrist, and working up, CC1 4240, CC2 4287, CC3 4288, CC4 4285, and CC5 4294.
Needles: US 3, (3.25mm) for both the outer mitten, and the lining.

    WOW!!! Those are GORGEOUS!!! Love them!! The Kidsilk Haze was an ingenious touch that makes these look so “expensive” as Tim Gunn would say :O)

    Good lord, those are beautiful! I like the green Kidsilk Haze lining; the color pops next to the blues and red. It’s the perfect touch. And I cannot wait for Adrian to make the pattern available. It’s lovely!

    OMG! They are dropped dead gorgeous! I am dying for a pair of these but will have to wait until a) a miracle occurs and I score a kit or b) The pattern becomes
    available to the public using the commercial yarns.
    Fingers crossed that it will be soon! Hey maybe you c
    can partner up and help her spin and sell some of the yarn:)
