Included in the kit (is the pattern and enough gorgeous yarn to complete the project):
:: The Frankie Mittens Pattern (printed copy)
:: One ball of Signature 4 Ply in Kingfisher.
Size: to fit average size adult hand.
Additional materials needed:
2.5mm double pointed needles
My design ideas and advice: I designed these mittens because I have wanted some simple mittens to relax knitting with in the evenings and because several beginner knitters wanted to knit socks but wanted to practise on double pointed needles without turning a heel!
(By the way, turning the heel is easier than it seems – I teach Sock Workshops if you need any calming help. I also designed easy to knit sock patterns – this one here uses DK yarn and while this one here uses 4 ply yarn for you to have a go!)
One of the most exciting things about these mittens is that the 2X2 is magical. It fits everyone’s hands! I designed the mittens with this rib for this reason and it is so lovely to see it happen! A gentleman, who said he had larger than average hands, tried on the pair in my Skipton Studio and they fitted him! He then took the pattern and yarn to knit his very first pair of fingerless mittens.
The Frankie Mittens use 35g/140m of the 100g ball so there is enough to make three pairs, with perhaps the last one being a little bit shorter than the others.
