Hollins Ferry Road winds through Southwest Baltimore, briefly running alongside the Patapsco River, which itself ultimately empties out into our beloved Chesapeake Bay. These fingerless mitts feature gently waving cables framing a river of seed stitch, which blends into the top edge. Worked in fingering weight yarn, they make a light layer that can be worn all year long, and 3-stitch cables are the perfect opportunity to practice cabling without a cable needle.
