Designed by Lola Johnson, Third Vault Yarns
The game that put Euro games on the map for the rest of the
world, where players attempt to settle the Island of Catan. An
Island built of land type hexes, which are placed in a random
configuration every game. These mitts echo the changing nature
of the island, with the hexes you can move about and choose your
own configuration, along with the road pattern across the rest of
the mitts. With the option to play with colourwork and/or
texture, you can build these mitts entirely your own.
How to choose yarn?
The yarn used for the sample here is Third Vault Yarns Companion 4ply. A very smooth, tightly spun yarn, that has good stretch and bounce, whilst maintaining decent drape. A good substitute would be a wool that has much the same properties though warmth, and stretch are the most important. A woolly wool is also a good idea for gloves.
