For this pattern I used:
Yarn & Amounts: Two 50g balls of Knoll Kilcarra Tweed or one 100g hank of West Yorkshire Spinners Bluefaced Leicester Aran.
Knoll Kilcarra Tweed (100% Pure New Wool, 80m/87yds per 50g) for the shade 4847 Gweedore (teal) pair and West Yorkshire Spinners Bluefaced Leicester Aran (100% Bluefaced Leicester, 166m/182yds per 100g) for the Undyed Light Brown pair.
Needles (for Kilcarra Tweed version): Set of four double pointed needles is sizes 4mm and 4.5mm.
Needles (for Bluefaced Leicester version): Set of four double pointed needles is sizes 4.5mm and 5mm.
Tension: 18 stitches and 24 rows to 10cm square over stocking stitch using 4.5mm (or 5mm for Bluefaced Leicester) needles.
Skill Level: ♦ ♦ ♦ ◊ ◊
Measurements: to fit average sized hand.
My design ideas and advice: These simple mittens are knitted on double pointed needles so the only seam to sew up is on the thumb. If you haven’t knitted mittens before or used dpns (see my video link below for advice on them) these are the perfect mittens to start with. And when you’ve knitted them you will feel so happy of your new skills! As always I am here to help. For experienced knitters these are great for a quick or easy project to knit for a gift or to keep your hands warm with natural fibres, the only way to keep warm.
