Pattern Details

These cozy mittens in two sizes (S/M and M/L) feature a panel motif drawn straight from the kale patch. This stranded colorwork project takes advantage of a deep, nearly solid foreground color to create distinct shapes with highlights in brighter tones. A tweed yarn for the background shade imparts a woodcut effect to the whole composition. Use soft, lofty yarns that will bloom easily for a final result with a consistent surface. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity. Finished Size: approximately 7(8) inches in circumference (washed and blocked) to fit hands measuring up to 6.5(7.5) inches around palm Note: size may be further refined by using needles one size larger or smaller Gauge: 21 sts and 32 rows = 4 inches in stockinette on middle needles in Stone Soup DK (unblocked) Note: gauge will be tighter in colorwork pattern

I am the owner of Knitspot - knitting patterns, clubs, and artisan yarns. I am a life-long knitter with a background in the fashion and graphic design fields, and began designing clothing, knitwear and accessories during the 1970s. I teach and write about knitting, spinning, and designing at my blog, Knitspot. I live and work in Ohio with David, who loves wool, too. My design work/profile has been included in Knitty, The Knitter, Interweave Knits, and Twist Collective, Sock Club, Brave New Knits, as well as several upcoming publications. The complete catalog of Knitspot patterns is available for browsing and purchasing at Knitspot yarn clubs are reknowned for perfect pairings of luxury yarn and design, as well as the rollicking good fun in our Ravelry clubhouse where members meet, chat, and knit through club projects together. Our Bare Naked yarns are as close to the farm as a knitter can get, using fresh fiber produce from regional growers which is then spun into yarn at smaller artisan mills with which I have worked over the years. The collection is focused on single-breed pure wool yarns and exotic blends, with colors that range an entire array of natural tones—yarn the way nature made it.
