Wreckhouse is an area of Newfoundland named for its extreme winds. While the Newfoundland Railway was still in operation, the winds would occasionally blow railway cars off the tracks, and to this day transport trucks are still blown off the road from time to time.
The Wreckhouse mitts are knit in thick, dense Honeycomb Brioche Stitch, making them a stylish but also truly functional winter accessory. The honeycomb pockets trap warm air, creating an effective barrier against the briskest of winter winds. With options for both fingerless mitts and full mittens, this versatile pattern is great for all seasons.
These mittens are knit in the round, beginning with a Brioche Stitch cuff. The rest of the mitt is worked in Honeycomb Brioche Stitch. Thumb gussets in Brioche Stitch ensure a great fit, and a purl stitch faux side seam eliminates the jog that occurs when knitting Honeycomb Brioche Stitch in the round.
Honeycomb Brioche Stitch is a relatively stretchy stitch pattern. As a result, these mittens are worn with more negative ease than most. Be sure to select a size based on the sizing information given.
