This kit contains the pattern and all the yarn you’ll need to knit Snowy Night Fingerless Mitts or the full mittens (one skein of each color for the small and medium sizes, 2 MC skeins and one CC skein for the large size). There are 2 colors of Brown Sheep Co. Nature Spun 100% wool sport weight yarn, 184 yards/168m per 1-3/4 oz. / 50g skein (Navy for MC and White for CC). These yarns are NOT superwash treated. You will need a set of US size 4 (3.5mm) double-pointed needles to knit the mitts circularly, but you can use the Magic Loop if you prefer. The mitts come in three sizes to fit a large child, a medium woman, or a large woman/medium man. The circumference above the thumb is 7 (8, 9)”.
The cuff is created by working a beautiful diagonal ribbing (from both the Latvian and Estonian traditions). At the wrist, a two-color Vikkel Braid (from Estonia) is worked. The hand is worked in stranded knitting following a chart with a snowflake on the top of the hand. The Afterthought, or Peasant, thumb is included and there are links in the pattern to some of the techniques.
The pattern includes photos and instructions for the special M1o (“Make 1 open”) increase for the ribbing, the Vikkel Braid, and charts for three sizes. A link to the afterthought thumb will take you to that video on Beth’s YouTube Channel
Care: Handwash, lay flat to dry.
