Warm Tweedy Mittens

Cosy Mittens -    

Fingerless or Full Mittens  ~  you chose .........


Warm Tweedy Mittens




 
 

 
Warm Tweedy Fingerless Mittens
 
Use 2 strands of DK yarn (8ply) knitted together ~ or any combination of yarns to make a total of 16ply .

I used 1 strand of DK plus 2 strands of 4ply               This gives a nice ‘tweedy’ look

7 ½ mm needles


For a Woman -
Cast on 21sts
1st Row:           K1, *k3, p1, repeat from * to last 4sts, k4
2nd Row:           K2, *p1, k3 repeat from * last 3sts, p1, k2
Repeat these two pattern rows 18 times more – or until around 9” (23cm) – or adjust to the length you require,
 39th Row:        K1, *k3, p1, repeat from * to last 4sts, k4
Cast off in pattern.
Sew up the side seam, leaving a gap for the thumb. Darn away loose ends.
Make another mitten the same.

  4. Fingerless gloves are often padded in the palm area, to provide protection to the hand
