Yarn packs for this design are available here.

Tulip Mittens are a Fair Isle style knitting design suitable for knitters experienced with stranded knitting. With an 8½" finished circumference, they are sized to fit most adult females' hands. For extra detail and warmth, they are knit at a tighter-than-usual gauge. Three shades of Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift fingering weight 100% Shetland wool yarn are used and you'll need 2 x 25g balls of the medium shade, 1 of the light and 1 of the dark. Charts for the Latvian style "peasant" thumbs include the alphabet and numbers so that you can add your own secret messages inside the stealth thumbs.

GAUGE: 36 sts and 36 rows = 4” / 10cm in stranded stockinette stitch

NEEDLES: If you tend to knit loosely, try US #1 / 2.25mm; if you tend to knit tightly, try US #1 1/2 / 2.50mm. Use whatever size needles you need to get the given gauge.

YARN: Four 25g balls of Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift 100% Shetland wool fingering weight yarn:Two balls in the medium blue, one in the dark blue, one in natural white.
