Annys gloves and headband
These charming Fair Isle fingerless mitts and headband set will keep you cosy through autumn, winter, and into spring. Worked in the round with a thumb that’s knit last, this is an ideal project for a beginning Fair Isle knitter.
Cascade 220 Fingering – 4 ply – 100g, 250m/ 273yrd per hank I have used above yarn held double throughout, If you would like to use single strand then light double knitting yarn will be just fine, taking into account that different fibres result in different finished effect. The approximate amounts of yarn you will require for both projects are: 4ply held double – 285m/311yrd of yarn A, 35m/38yrd of yarn B and 20m/22yrd of yarn C.
**Gloves – **Knuckle circumference: S, M, L (16, 18, 20) cm, (6.3, 7, 7.8) in
Length: S, M, L (18, 18.5, 19.5) cm, (7, 7.2, 7.6) in.
Headband – 50 cm (19 in) in circumference and 9 cm (3.5 in) wide.
