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.

  • One size: 56 sts

  • Kässäkerho Pom Pom Donegal Tweed (85% merino, 15% viscose, 400 m/100 g, 437 yd/3.53 oz), 1 skein in the colorway Hopea
  • or approx. 200 m / 220 yd of fingering-weight yarn
Look for a round, high-twist yarn with good stitch definition that makes the cables and twisted stitches pop.


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


  • 2 stitch markers (4 if working two-at-a-time)
  • 2 cable needles
  • Stitch holder for thumb stitches (e.g., waste 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


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

The ability to work 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.
