A quick, simple project to get you started knitting with unspun mawata (silk hankies). If you enjoy the look and feel of handspun yarn, but haven’t learned to spin, knitting with mawata is the perfect option. Each glove takes a very small amount of yarn, perfect for getting your feet wet. You could also knit them in any other small amount of precious yarn, such as handspun or luxury fiber.

Yardage listed is for one glove.

Wear two gloves to keep your hands from being chilly while reading or typing, or wear one MJ-style. Either way, enjoy a little bit of luxury on your wrists. Silk is surprisingly warm.
