Pattern Description:

This ebook provides two patterns in one PDF: Peppernut Shawl and Peppernut Mitts. Both are knit using fingering weight yarn and feature lovely textured stitch patterns, including the Estonian bobble known as nupps.

MITTS INFO:

Sizes: Small (7 inches/18 cm long by 6.75 inches/17 cm wide before seaming, measured at garter stitch cuff) and Medium/Large (7.5 inches/19 cm long by 7.25 inches/18.5 cm wide before seaming, measured at garter stitch cuff)

Yardage: 150 yards/137 m fingering weight yarn. The sample shown in the photos was knit with Bare Naked Wools Stone Soup fingering 80% wool, 15% alpaca, 5% combination of tencel, bamboo, silk, and bison; 475yd/434m per 3.5oz/100g skein in the Pumice colorway.

Needles: US #2/2.75mm and US #3/3.25mm needles for the small size; US #3/3.25mm and US #4/3.50mm for the medium/large size

Pattern difficulty: Intermediate/confident beginner. Experience reading charts (or willingness to learn) and some experience with lace knitting are helpful.

Skills required: Casting on, knitting, purling, increases and decreases, yarn overs, binding off, reading charts. Stitch patterns are provided in charts.

Gauge: 25 sts/42 rows = 4"/10 cm in garter stitch on smaller needles after blocking (Small); 23 sts/40 rows = 4"/10 cm in garter stitch on smaller needles after blocking (Medium/Large)

SHAWL INFO:
The pattern PDF gives instructions for knitting the shawl in one size. The "wingspan" (width of top edge, after blocking) is 52 inches/132 cm.

The shawl requires 575 yards/526 m fingering weight yarn. The sample shown in the photos was knit with Bare Naked Wools Stone Soup fingering [80% wool, 15% alpaca, 5% combination of tencel, bamboo, silk, and bison; 475yd/434m per 3.5oz/100g skein] in the Pumice colorway.

You'll also need a 24- or 32-inch US4/3.50mm circular knitting needle and a 24- or 32-inch US5/3.75mm circular knitting needle (the smaller needle us used for the knit-purl section and the larger needle is used for the lace). For ease in working the nupps in the lace section, a needle with a fairly pointy tip is recommended.

Pattern difficulty: intermediate/confident beginner. Experience reading charts (or willingness to learn) and some experience with lace knitting are helpful. Tips are offered for working the nupps as well as a link to a helpful video.

Skills required include casting on, knitting, purling, increases and decreases, yarnovers, binding off, reading charts. Stitch patterns are provided in charts.
