For this pattern I used:
Yarn & Amounts: One 100g ball of WYS Signature 4ply
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.
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! (By the way, 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 pairs, with perhaps the last one being a little bit shorter than the others.
