Add To Basket

Originally part of a mystery knit-along I ran with my designer friend, Sarah Alderson, this pattern has two different interchangeable options at each stage; wrist, main hand, and the finger and thumb cuffs.

To fit hand circumferences of up to 18(201⁄2: 23)cm/7(8:9)”, measured around the palm above the thumb.
The finished slip stitch mittens measure 9(10:111⁄2)cm/31⁄2(4:41⁄2)” wide minus the thumb gusset.
The finished stranded colourwork mittens measure 81⁄4(91⁄2:103⁄4)cm/31⁄4(33⁄4:41⁄4)” wide minus the thumb gusset.
In both versions the finished length is 17 cm/63⁄4″.

4ply/fingering weight yarn with approximately 180 metres/200 yards per 50g. You will need approximately 75(90:100) metres/80(100:110) yards of your chosen main colour and 60(70:80) metres/65(75:90) yards of your chosen contrast colour.
For the prototypes Sarah used Woolyknit ‘4ply Classics’ (100% merino wool), and Ann used King Cole ‘Merino Blend 4ply’ (100% wool).

26 stitches and 30 rounds per 10cm/4″ in plain stocking stitch/stockinette, measured after blocking.
32 sts and 36 rounds per 10cm/4″ in corrugated rib and stranded colourwork pattern, measured after blocking.
28 sts and 42 rounds per 10cm/4″ in slip stitch pattern, measured after blocking.

Swatch to determine what needle size you need to use to get the tension/gauge given below. Sarah used 3.25mm needles and Ann used 3.5mm needles. Choose the needle type and length you prefer for small diameter circular knitting.

3 stitch markers.

Waste yarn for holding stitches. A cable needle (optional).
