These cute fingerless mittens and cosy full mittens are knitted in a chunky yarn that shows the texture of the twisted stitches beautifully. Both styles of mitten are knitted in the round with mock side seams, which avoid a jog in the stitch pattern. These ‘seams’ flow up from the rick-rack rib, through the Vikkel braid to the woven stitch pattern. The fingerless mittens are shaped using a one-over- two cast-off that also minimises rolling of the edge. The mittens are finished with a special cast-off that mimics the ‘seams’. The folk-style thumbs are knitted last, with no shaping necessary.
Patterns for a matching hat and cowl are also available.
