Fetching Necessity



Fetching Necessity
Originally uploaded by StoneAmazon.

A convertible mitten hybrid of knitty.com's Fetching and subway knitter's Urban Necessity from Magknits.

Knit from stash on US 6's; cream Lamb's Pride worsted and Nashua Woolly Stripes Yarn in Ocean (leftover from Mom's felted slipper socks). I love the Woolly Stripes yarn for sheen and color change (I also have 2 skeins in Key West waiting for a project)

I knit and love a pair of Fetching mitts, but I needed something warmer for this past winter, so I melded the two patterns, choosing the Fetching cable detailing and single opening for the fingers, and the Urban Necessity's flip top construction.

Check out my flickr page for more detailed photos.

    Really, really lovely. I like the stripes and I LOVE the cables.

  2. Thank you! It was cold enough today that I could contemplate wearing them in the near future.

  3. Did you ever write the pattern down for this? I've been hunting all over for a pattern to make something like this and this is the one I like the best. Magknits is apparently no longer in existence, either.
