What's more fun than knitting little stranded mittens ... especially these with their distinctly tribal vibe!
Kilim mittens are worked in the round from wrist to fingertips. The thumb shaping is part welt, part flap for a lovely fit. Thumbs and hands are shaped with a comfortable curve, and Kitchener stitch is used to graft the final remaining hand stitches.
Finished Size: 7" palm circumference, to fit a woman. To modify fit, adjust needle size.
Yarn: Sunday Knits 3 ply (sport weight) in Eden (100% merino), Nirvana (92% merino 8% cashmere), Brigadoon (merino tweed) and Angelic (75% merino 25% angora);
In eleven High Country colors (as shown): 1 50-gm skein each of Nirvana apple for main and Eden fawn for contrasting colors, and 1 20-gm skein each of Eden in chocolate, violet, sea, lagoon & sage; Angelic in nut; Nirvana in charcoal & moss and Brigadoon in blackish.
Kilim would also be great in two colors:about 200 yds of the main color and 150 yds contrasting color.
