For this pattern you need:
Yarn: One 50g ball each of dk weight yarn (with 115m per 50g) in shade A and shade B.
Metres/Yardage for shade A: 110m/120yds.
Metres/Yardage for shade B: 110m/120yds.
My Yarn Suggestions & Amounts: Knoll Mohair Tweed or Merino Cotton one 50g ball each in shade A and shade B.
WYS Bluefaced Leicester DK or WYS Illustrious DK one 100g hank is enough to make a pair without the striping.
Needles: 3.75mm knitting needles and 4mm knitting needles.
Tension: 22 stitches and 30 rows to 10cm square over stocking stitch using 4mm needles.
Skill Level: ♦ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊
Measurements: to fit average size hand.
My designs and ideas: As the mornings turn chilly from Autumn to Winter it’s tricky to know how cold it is out when the sun is shining. There are lots of natural fibres to choose form at Purl &Jane to knit these mittens with. I have the Knoll Mohair Tweed in two colourful shades for one version and as well as two shades in natural undyed shades from WYS to create another pair. These mittens are simple and easy to knit so they let the yarn speak for itself.
