Pattern Description:

Texel is an island in the North Sea and the stitch patterns of these fingerless mittens remind me of the waves of the sea.

32 sts, 44 rows = 10x10cm (4x4") in St st

32 sts, 70 rows = 10x10cm (4x4") in wave pattern

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Women's XS/S, [Women's M, Women's L], for 17 [19, 20.5]cm (= 6 5/8[7 3/8, 8 1/8]") mitten circumference above thumb, to fit hands of same size or larger. The stitch pattern stretches well to provide a good fit.


  • Fingering weight yarn, such as Regia 4-ply: 1 skein of 50g (210m/230 yards) of each colour (colours shown in pictures: 0017 light camel mottled and 01980 blue-grey mottled)
  • 2 sets of 5 DPNs 2.25mm/US size 1 (or any other needles that can be used for knitting in the round)
  • tapestry needle for weaving in ends
