Just dropping in to let you know that Alice’s Mitts are now live on Ravelry. This link will take you through to the pattern if you’d like to make a pair of your own!
These fingerless mitts are knit in the round using 2.5mm DPN needles and feature alternate slanting cables for each hand to give the mitts a balanced look. Knit the cuff/arm to the length you want before beginning the thumb gusset.
Size to fit the average medium sized woman’s hand, approximately 21cm/8” at widest point excluding thumb.
Measurement of pictured mitts is approx. 19cm/7½” long and used approx 55g of Ashford Mackenzie 4 ply 100% merino wool.
Sizing can be easily adjusted for fit by using 2.25mm/US 1 needles for smaller or 2.75mm/US 2 needles for larger hands.
Use whatever fingering weight (4 ply) yarn you fancy to knit these mitts! For luxury, why not try a squishy possum, alpaca or cashmere yarn!
On this side of the planet, we’re about to experience our first week of proper winter weather, with snow forecast for the mountains and chilly temps for the rest. I’m looking forward to rugging up in my winter woollens at last!
