Cafe au Lait Mitts

I like to squeeze in a little knitting between sewing projects so that I can keep the fiber stash under control and not get buried underneath. This little project isn't making a huge dent in my stash but the pattern called for just the right amount of yarn (130 yards) for this skein of alpaca from Alpacas of Cedar Ridge. The pattern is very easy to follow and it will definitely be a quick knit. The free pattern for the Cafe au Lait Mitts can be found on Ravelry.

The stitch markers are from Ruth at She had a giveaway recently for these lovely stitch markers that she created and I was the lucky recipient! I immediately added them to my mitt project. Thank you Ruth!

What are your favorite one-skein knitting projects? 


  1. My favourite one skein project is nothing as beautiful as yours! My one skein limit would be a quick knit up of a scarf. So I am now off to have a peek at this pattern, particularly as it is Winter here now...

  2. Looks like a great pattern, and I've added it to my queue. I'm glad you like the stitch markers. :)

  3. What a pretty pattern! And how lucky you are to win those stitch markers! I LOVE one skein projects. Mitts are easy and useful; I like Susie's Reading Mitts and Staghorn Mitts. The Hermione Hearts Ron hat is also one of my favorites.
