Up To No Good Mitts

On Sale
Added to cart
These fingering weight mitts are knitted in a clever combination of slip stitches, stripes and short rows that create bold slanting bands of colour on the back of the hand when they’re worn. Each mitt begins with a provisional crochet cast on and is worked flat in rows before the first and last rows are grafted to join at the side of the hand using Kitchener stitch. Working in slip stitches creates a dense, warm fabric and to balance this the edges are finished with a simple k1, p1 rib worked with the fingering yarn held double.

364 metres (400 yards) of your favourite Fingering weight yarn in contrasting colours, Col A & Col B. So you'll need 182 m (200 yards) of each shade.

Shown here in Lady Dye Yarns Superwash Merino Single Ply Fingering weight Col A Black Betty
and Col B Bloody Mary.
