Pattern Details









Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round
  • picking up stitches
  • buttonholes (for convertible thumbs)--instructions included in pattern
  • reading charts is helpful, but instructions are written out as well

Pattern Description:

Do you want the look of chevrons, but you're not ready for, say, a yellow shirt with a big black zigzag? Quiver Mitts offer a subtle chevron texture in a simple broken rib pattern. No cables or twisted stitchesjust knits and purls.

I've designed these mitts with options. Decide whether you'd like fingerless mitts, full-length mittens, or convertible fingerless mitts. You can even choose from three types of afterthought thumbs"fingerless," closed, or convertible. Knit from a smooth, worsted weight wool, these mitts work up quickly when you need a gift by the end of the week or if chilly weather sneaks up on you.

Pattern includes charts, written directions, and links to techniques used in this pattern.

Samples used approximately 120 yds of Cascade 220 for fingerless mitts; 150 yds for full/convertible mitts. Estimated yardage reflects a 10-15% cushion.
