These are knitted in 100% acrylic yarn. The benefit there is they are washable and will wear well and retain their shape. I love the gray and maroon colors. Doesn't look like maroon? Oh, well that's because evidently I'm a poor photographer. Nothing I did make the color come out true. But trust me, they're maroon. The colors are sporty, and reminded me of something I'd wear to a fall football game, sporting school colors.
I worked these entirely in the round with double pointed needles. It's nice to be able to try them on as I go!
Hooray for fall and mitten weather! My favorite time of the year!
