Originally published in stitched.zone, these unisex mitts are named for Luray Caverns in the Shenandoah Valley and were inspired by cave formations of stalactites and stalagmites. I can see both of those features in the stitch pattern I “unvented.”
The stitch is worked all the way around, and both mitts are knit the same, which is convenient for the wearer (as well as easier for the knitter). Overall, in spite of the elaborate texture, the pattern is very easy to work, and the sizing is generous due to the ribbed nature of the stitch.
