A cèilidh in Scotland and Ireland is social gathering – often where stories are told, food is eaten, and dances are held. This knit was inspired by those dances, with intertwining cables, and gentle twists and turns, mimicking the dancers on the floor as they twirl about.
These fingerless mitts are knit with negative ease, and due to the ribbing allow for a wide range of arm and hand sizes.
Knit with less than 200 yards of yarn, these are the perfect quick knit for yourself, or for lucky gift recipients!
