Inspiration for the Evergrey Mitts came from the silver needles of a blue spruce (Picea pungens). The cuffs are worked using a lace-and-twisted-stitch rib that reminded me of a forest floor covered with fallen needles. The back of the hand is adorned with a cabled spruce motif encased in a medallion of twisted stitches.

The mitts are worked in the round cuff up using either double-pointed needles or magic loop. Left and right mitts can be worked two-at-a-time.

The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are given for the stitch patterns.

  • Finished hand circumference: approx. 16.5 cm / 6½"
  • Finished length: approx. 22.5 cm / 8¾"
  • Cuff: approx. 10 cm / 4"



  • Kässäkerho Pom Pom Donegal Tweed (85% merino, 15% dye-resistant nylon, 400 m/100 g), 1 skein in silver gray
  • or approx. 200 m / 220 yd of fingering-weight sock yarn
Look for a round, high-twist yarn with good stitch definition. This makes the cables and twisted stitches pop.


  • 2.25 mm / US 1 DPNs or circular needle(s) for working small circumferences in the round (or size needed to obtain gauge)


  • Two stitch markers
  • Two cable needles
  • Stitch holder (e.g., a piece of scrap yarn or safety pin)
  • Darning needle


  • 30 sts × 42 rnds = 10 cm / 4” in reverse stockinette
  • 28 sts × 42 rnds = 10 cm / 4” in Fallen Needles Rib


Pattern uses the following techniques: working small circumferences in the round on double-pointed needles or in magic loop, casting on in the middle of a round, picking up stitches, twisted stitches, and working advanced cables.

Ability to work lace and cables from a chart is recommended but written instructions are also provided for the stitch patterns.

Some cables require the use of two cable needles; cabling without a cable needle will speed up your knitting.
