Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Techniques & Skills Used: knit/purl, knitting into the stitch below, knitting in the round.

Pattern Description:

The Chunnel Mitts are long armwarmers with fitted rib cuffs and hands, and deep textural gauntlet forearms which can be scrunched up or worn straight depending on the weather and your coat sleeve length. An easy and fast knit with a thumb slit and no increasing or decreasing, the deep channel tunnels of the gauntlet stitch pattern do an excellent job of breaking up pooling in variegated yarns. Weave in ends neatly and the Chunnel Mitts are completely reversible, showing a different but equally attractive pattern on the reverse side.


Gauge: 28 st and 28 rounds/4" in K1P1 Rib, unstretched; 16 st and 38 rounds/4" in Gauntlet Rib; 20 st and 28 rows/4" in stockinette stitch, for reference.

  • Size: S (M, L): to fit 6.5 (7.5, 8.5)" palm circumference; 4 (4, 5)" length from wrist. Cuff length = approximately 7 (8.25, 9.25)". The Chunnel Mitts are very stretchy, and size M fits a wide range from teen to women's large.
