Ladies’ Fair Isle / Norwegian style knitted mittens design worked in two colors throughout. Two sizes: 8” palm circumference, to fit the average, adult female hand; 9” palm circumference, to fit an extra large, adult female hand.

GAUGE: For the 8” version: 36 sts and 38 rows = 4” / 10cm; for the 9” version: 32 sts and 34 rows = 4” / 10cm. Work either gauge in stranded stockinette stitch.

NEEDLES: For the 8” version: US size 1 / 2.25mm; for the 9” version: US size 2 / 2.50mm. Use whatever size needles you need to obtain the given gauge.

YARN: The red and white samples shown were knit in O-Wool Classic 2-ply, 50g skein = 198 yds / 181 m using one skein for each of the two colors. There was more than enough of the white, but only a few inches of the red (background color) were unused. O-Wool Classic 2-ply has since been discontinued. Not every 50g ball of fingering weight wool provides as much yardage as Classic 2-ply did. So, if you plan to substitute with another fingering weight wool yarn, I’d recommend getting 50g of the motif (white) color and 75g of the background (red) color.

This pattern was first published in the Winter 2011 edition of Twist Collective. Copyright Mary Ann Stephens 2011.
