De-Lovely Mitts

Delovely: fingerless mittens with simple lace & twisted stitches, knit in scrumptious MCN.

Published in the Fall 2010 Knitcircus.

I’m always looking for patterns that look elaborate but will knit up quickly for holiday gifts. De‑Lovely is just that: a combination of lacy whimsy and fun twisted, traveling stitches
that is quicker and easier to work than it appears.

Pattern is both charted and written out.

You can probably get 2 pairs of mitts out of 1 skein of 400yd sock yarn, depending on size knitted and your gauge.

Finished size: Small [Medium, Large]; Finished Measurements 5 [5.75, 6.25]” unstretched.

Yarn: MCN Fingering, Sun Valley Fiber Farm,80% Merino,10% Cashmere,10% Nylon, 400 yds/100grm.

Needles: US 1 – 2.25 mm &US 1½ – 2.5 mm, or size to obtain gauge.  Your choice of Magic Loop, 2 circulars or DPNs.

Gauge: 30 sts & 40 rows over 4” in St st in the rnd.  This gauge in this yarn produces a nice dense fabric that shows off the traveling stitches.

Notions: Cable needle, stitch markers (3), yarn needle.

Skills needed:  simple lace, twisted stitches, knitting in the round.
