For this pattern I used:
Yarn & Amounts: One 100g ball of WYS Signature 4ply (75% Wool contains 35% Bluefaced Leicester and 25% nylon, 400m/437yds per 100g)
Needles: Set of four double pointed 2.5mm needles.
Tension: 32 stitches and 40 rows to 10cm square over rib pattern when slightly stretched using 2.5mm needles.
Skill Level: ♦ ♦ ♦ ◊ ◊
Measurements: to fit average sized hand.
My design ideas and advice: I designed these mittens because I have wanted some simple mittens to relax with in the evenings and because several beginner knitters wanted to knit socks but wanted to practise on double pointed needles without turning a heel! (Btw turning the heel is easier than it seems – I do Sock Workshops as well as easy sock patterns here and here)
One of the most exciting things about these mittens is that the 2×2 rib is magical. It fits everyone’s hands! I designed the mittens with this rib for this reason and it is so lovely to see it happen!
A gentleman, who said he had larger than average hands, tried on the pair in my Skipton Studio and they fitted him! He then took the pattern and yarn to knit his very first pair of fingerless mittens.
The Frankie Mittens use 35g/140m of the 100g ball so there is enough to make three, with perhaps the last one being a little bit shorter than the others.
