Wonderland Fingerless MittsAugust 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!
