Beautiful pattern for self-dyed sock yarn. The zigzag goes smoothly around the thumb and there is no seam to be seen.
Years ago, I fell in love with Elizabeth Zimmermanns garter stitch patterns. I admire their simplicity and their sophisticated design. AND a good friend of mine needed some stylish warmth for her hands. So these mitts simply had to be in garter stitch. And colourful. Something special for a special person.
Mirja is adjustable to any hand and you can knit them with fingering weight or dk/worsted weight. You can make the mitts long or short - or better: try both. And you just need one skein (100g)! Have fun and make your individual Mirja mitts with hand-dyed yarn! :::
Mirja is knitted sideways. You start with the gusset, add stitches at the left and the right side for the main body of the mitts and knit on in zig-zag garter stitch around your wrist. The ends are then grafted together.
