Description

Octopus Mittens are a pair of stranded colorwork mittens.

Size:
The mittens are 8.5 inches around (measured above the thumb) and 9 inches tall (1.5 inches of cuff and 7.5 inches in hand). They fit a medium-sized woman's hand, 7.5 inches around and 7 inches from the base of the palm to the tip of the fingers. Directions are given in only one size. Resize mittens by changing gauge appropriately.

Difficulty:
This is an intermediate colorwork project. It involves many long floats, a non-repetitive pattern, and a design that wraps around the palm and thumb.

The colorwork directions are given in chart form.

Yarn:
The pattern calls for equal amounts of two colors -- approximately 150 yards of each. This is just barely more than half a skein of each color in Sanguine Gryphon Traveller. The Sanguine Gryphon no longer exists, but the Traveller yarn is available from its children and sister companies: the Verdant Gryphon, Cephalopod Yarns, and Dragonfly Fibers (Dragonfly
