Hemlock Mitts are pretty fingerless mitts with a textured cable panel on the top of the hand and a thumb gusset for a comfortable fit. These are a fun and interesting knit, the cable patterning is actually achieved with twisted and slipped stitches - no cable needle required!
Hemlock mitts are knit in the round in DK/8ply yarn. I prefer magic loop but DPNs would also work. Matching hat and cowl also available in my store.
Sizing is achieved through gauge. For petite/teen size the gauge is 23st/10cm (suggested needle size 3.75mm). For average woman size the gauge is 22st/10cm (suggested needle size 4mm).
You will need 50-75g of DK. Pattern lists 75g/160m approx but myself and testers used closer to 50g for the pair.
