Wonderland Fingerless Mitts

August 2, 2011

Another Christmas FO!  I’m knocking these out and have about 6 more to go, I think. It’s funny to be sitting around in 90 degree heat, knitting things up for winter. These are another pair of fingerless mittens designed by Jenn Wisbeck.  I knitted two of her designs now, and I love both of them.

For this pair, I stuck with using Berocco Ultra Alpaca Light.  The pattern called for a fingering weight yarn, but when I looked at the gauge, I knew I couldn’t get it with a fingering weight yarn – the mittens would be too small.  I know a get a gauge of about 7 stitches to an inch in two stranded colorwork when I use a DK weight yarn on #2 needles, so that’s what I used.  And my gauge was right on.  I love these mittens so much, it will be hard to give them up!

Pattern:  Wonderland
Needles: US#2 circular, using Magic Loop
Yarn:  Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light, in Winter White and Rose Spice
