Simple fingerless mitts show off a whole rainbow of colours. These seamless mitts have long ribbed cuffs to keep your wrists cosy. The hands are worked in stocking stitch and there is a thumb gusset for easy movement. Another rib section at the top ensures a snug fit around your fingers, and this can be worn folded back when you prefer to have your fingers uncovered. There’s a choice of three kits that work with this same pattern. The difference is the rainbow striping: narrow or wide, or one mitt of each.
4ply/Fingering weight; 100% British Blue Faced Leicester superwash wool; 280m/306yds per 70g/2.5oz kit
Wide Kit quantities: Main Colour: 120m/131yds in 30g/1.07oz Contrast Colours: 160m/175yds in 40g/1.43oz
Each kit contains the Main Colour and eight Contrast Colours. There are equal amounts of the Contrast Colours, so you can use them in whatever order you would like, even on the Thumb. Each kit contains enough yarn to work a pair of mitts in the largest size at the correct tension, plus a margin of 10%.
The width of stripe you can work is based on the kit you have, so the Narrow Kit has the correct quantities of different colours for working the Narrow Stripe Sequence, and the Wide Kit for the Wide Stripe Sequence. The Mixed Kit has the right quantity for one of each!
