Bilberry Fingerless Mitts | PDF Knitting Pattern
Please note: This pattern comes in digital form. After the purchase is complete you'll be automatically emailed the PDF file/s to download.
Bands of bilberry leaves wrap around these mitts, creating a pretty pattern and extra warmth due to the stranded inside. The mitts are finished with a twisted rib cuff at the wrists and band across the fingers.
Fingerless mitts are a great option as they keep your hands warm but don't hinder your fingers as gloves can.
These mitts are quick to knit with fun colour work to keep you engaged.
Note on Technique:
These mitts are constructed with a combination of knitting both flat & in-the-round, there is no seaming required and minimal finishing off.
The pattern includes written instructions with charts for the colour work.
What you'll need:
Or 4ply/ fingering weight wool that gives correct tension. If substituting, try to use a raw wool yarn to get the best finish in the colour work.
The finished pair uses a total of 30g yarn, so there is leftover yarn if you wish to lengthen the mitts.
3.25mm circular needle
of at least 80cm length (for magic looping) or size to obtain gauge. Feel free to change to your preferred needle/ method for working in-the-round.
Full requirements such as gauge can be found inside the pattern.
