New for Christmas 2022!
Whether rainbows speak to you of Pride, peace, support for the NHS or sunshine on a rainy day, this little kit for fingerless mitts is sure to bring you crafting joy!
Supplied with our beautiful, buttery Black & Blue Welsh Wool, it is a simple pattern suitable for beginners (or more experienced knitters looking for a quick and relaxing project) , with only a few increases in the thumb gusset to contend with. The mitts are knit in the round using either the Magic Loop technique for circular needles, or for traditional Double Pointed ones.
Each kit contains:
120gr total of our hand dyed Black & Blue Welsh Wool in 7 colours
Full pattern instructions to make one pair of adult size mitts.
As this is a yarn with plenty of stretch, the instructions are based on one-size-fits-most, though footnotes on how to adapt if needed are included.
You will need:
Circular or DPN needles in 3.25mm and 3.75mm
2 stitch markers
Darning needle for weaving in ends
This is the listing for the mitts using the Welsh Mist Grey as the main colour - they are also available with the Navy Blue in a separate listing.
PLEASE NOTE: this is a listing for the kit to knit the mittens yourself, NOT a finished product
About the yarn:
Black & Blue Welsh Wool is our very own-produced yarn, spun from a single flock of sheep in North Wales. Mr Owen has carefully chosen a blend of his prize-winning white and black Bluefaced Leicesters for us, and it has been expertly spun by a mill in West Wales. It is then hand dyed by ourselves here in Scotland.
The result is a wonderfully soft and bouncy yarn in a gentle grey shade with plenty of life and depth. It has the lustre and softness typical of Bluefaced Leicester wool, but without quite losing its woolly character.
The yarn itself is a solid DK weight of a 3-plied construction, making for a round yarn with plenty of stitch definition.
