New Pattern: Indikon

Last summer, I saw some indigo-dyed yarn from Pigeonroof Studios on Instagram and fell in love. Before long I was over at her website, purchasing a skein of Dovecote, a sportweight Cormo-Rambouillet blend. I knew I had to design something with it, and the result is my new fingerless mitts pattern, Indikon.

Left and right twists join knits and purls to create an appealingly squishy texture in these warm, unisex mitts. Worked in the round on double-pointed needles, they take their name from the Greek indikon (“blue dye from India”).

The pattern gives instructions for two sizes, fitting palms from 7 inches/18 cm up to 9 inches/23 cm. The textured stitch pattern is provided in both written form and a chart.
