Pairings: Acadia/Wabi Mitts

I have been searching for the perfect pattern for two skeins of The Fiber Company’s Acadia (in the granite colorway) that I have been holding on to for quite a while.  I tried a few options, hats with lace and cable and various textures, none were right.

I think I have finally found the perfect pattern to pair with this yarn, Wabi Mitts by Karen Templer.  They are a simple knitted mitt, with a contrasting purled thumb gusset.  This simplicity will let this yarn’s rustic charm shine.  The gauge is a little off, so I will have to add few stitches to make up for it.  As long as I am modifying, I think I’ll add a little length to the cuff.
