Made available May 21st, 2014
About 100 yards of handspun yarn (12 WPI) or a heavy and springy fingering to sport weight yarn. I used my special Meow brand "Fishy Blue" yarn, to be available for sale online in the coming months.
US size 3/3.25mm DPNs or 16"-24" circular (whatever is most comfortable for knitting in the round)
Split ring or stitch marker (to keep track of where you are in rows)
9 sts/9 rows = 1 inch of k2, p2 ribbing (unstretched)
Notes and Instructions:
If you make the mitten larger or longer, you'll need 100+ yards of yarn, so please plan accordingly.
You can cast on any amount of stitches, but please make sure it's in multiples of 4.
The thumb is added on after your mitt is done. It's completely optional.
Long-tail CO 40 sts, separate
Start k2, p2 ribbing for four inches.
Now, turn and start k2, p2 rib, going back and forth as if knitting "flat" for 8 rows.
After 8 rows of flat knitting, continue back to knitting in the round for 10 rows.
Bind off using a "stretchy" bind-off (with knit stitches: knit bind off, with purl stitches, purl bind off).
Pick up 16 sts on the thumb hole, separate.
k2, p2 rib for 10 rows. Bind off with "stretchy" bind-off.
Repeat for the second mitt.
Please do not try to steal and say this was your pattern, no profit for finished product or pattern that is FREE.
