These mittens are seriously cosy, knitted in Blacker Swan Falkland Islands wool DK, which sooo soft! The pattern came about by mistake when I was charting an old vintage chevron pattern and messed it up, so I flipped it over and ended up with this.
The pattern is a simple two-colour Fair Isle design which is fun to create. The mittens are knitted in the round, increasing for the thumb, which is then added on afterwards. The pattern is charted clearly and is available in 3 sizes – Women’s Small-Large and Men’s large.
Simply Knitting issue 115 (January 14) is available as a digital download at Zinio for £4.99 and also contains my slip-stitch “Cute Cabled Socks” pattern, among the many other lovely patterns it includes!
