Product details

This pattern is for a basic pair of mittens with a ribbed cuff, a thumb gusset, and a fitted, tapered hand. The mitts are knit at a firm gauge for maximum warmth.

Shown in worsted weight in purple in Lang Yak, you will need 1 (2, 2) balls. If knit in the widely available Cascade 220, you will need 1 (1, 1) skein.

Fingering weight yarns may also be used in the pattern, held double. The variegated mittens shown use Mirasol Hachito. If using doubled yarn, you will need 240 (300, 370) yds/ 220 (275, 340) m.

This pattern has been professionally tech edited by Kate Atherley at and beautifully photographed by Gillian Martin at

My pattern is based on mittens I received every year as a child from a grandmother who had knitting on every horizontal surface in her house. I like to think that's where I get it from.
