Fiskhamnen (fish harbour) mittens are named after a neighbourhood in eastern Helsinki. The neighbourhood is a partly artificial peninsula surrounded by the sea and several small islands. These mittens work well with only two colors, but you could also try using up your scrap yarn, knitting each stripe with a different color. The mittens are knitted top down, and they have an interesting diagonal thumb gusset.
The circumference of the mitten is 18.5cm (7 1/4 inches) and the length from wrist to the tip 18.5 cm (7 1/4 inches). Instructions for lengthening the mitten are given in the pattern.
The pattern includes knitting in round, KFB, Judy’s magic cast on, EZ’s sewn bind off.
