Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic knitting
  • Knitting in the round
  • Knit, purl, lifted bar increases

Pattern Description:

A texture pattern that is easy to work, fast, and fully reversible. What's not to love? I call it the Wobble Rib.

Made up of knits and purls with lifted bar increases for the thumb gusset, this is a pattern for advanced beginners. If you like long mitts you can make the gauntlet length version or choose to shorten the cuff down as far as you wish. The pattern is flexible so you can also choose to make the fold-over finger cuff shown on the shorter red mitts to keep your fingers extra warm.

The sizes are to provide a fit with positive ease, allowing the Wobble Rib pattern to shine with it's deep texture, but it is easy to add or subtract stitches at cast on to customize the fit of your mitts.

The gauntlet version is shown in Swan's Island Organic Washable DK in color Pumpkin and takes two skeins of this yarn.

The fold-over finger version is in Squoosh Fiber Arts Ultra DK in color Blood Orange and took only one skein. You can easily substitute your favorite DK or Sport weight yarn and get a shorter pair of mitts out of 200 - 250 yards.

My family is made up of moi, my loving/enabling husband, my silly son and two rascally rabbits. I have a passionate love for hand-painted yarns and got sick of trying to knit them up and having them look less than optimal. I try my best to design so that variegated yarns look good in my patterns, often designing specifically with them in mind.

My mother is crazy crafty and I started early. I ...
