mittens or fingerless mitts with two-color dots and twists

This is part of the Two Texture Trio: each individual pattern is $6 or the set of all three is $12.

  • written for four sizes, and the wrist & hand lengths are easily adjustable
  • made with slipped stitches, one yarn used at a time
  • dots on hand tops, twisted-stitch pattern on palms
  • pattern is written and charted
  • works nicely with two solids, or with one subtly variegated colorway

Jónsi is a double-sided, dual-purpose pattern: make fingerless mitts or full mittens, either option with very different front and back sides. The tops of the hands have a fun textured polka-dot pattern, and the palm sides are covered with a more dense twisted-stitch color design.

They are made in the round, one yarn in use at a time (no stranded colorwork), the main stitch patterns worked with slipped stitches. The palm pattern is made with simple twists (1-over-1 stitch cables; find tutorials here).

They would work fine in two solid colors, or using one subtly variegated yarn along with a solid makes for an interesting look. To get the stitch patterns to look like the samples, use a subtly variegated yarn for the main color with a solid or semi-solid for the contrasting; but they should also look good with two solids or semi-solids, or a subtly variegated yarn used as the contrasting color instead.

In addition to the main two stitch pattern textures, you’ll get a bonus third texture in the garter-striped thumbs, plus the 
ribbed bottom edge (and top edge for the fingerless version).
