Runrig Muffatees

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Provisional cast on, Three needle bind off

Pattern Description:

Muffatees, the simplest kind of mitt, no fingers or thumbs, just an open-ended tube of knitting with a thumb-hole in the side. Runrig muffatees - named for the ploughed ridges and dividing runnels that characterized the early agricultural landscape in the UK and that are echoed in the mitt's construction - are knitted from side to side in one piece, in either Aran or DK weight yarn. The Aran yarn gives a sturdy, practical mitt, the DK a longer, softer, more elegant mitt. The pretty picot-point edging at fingers and thumb is easy to work, and the three needle bind off gives a seamless comfort. Uses just 100g of yarn.

Materials:

  • 100g Aran, Worsted OR DK weight yarn

You Will Also Need:

  • 2x pairs 2.75mm needles, waste yarn for cast on

Suggested yarn:

150 meters of Worsted weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Elann Peruvian Sierra Aran (Originally knitted in Debbie Bliss Fez, now discontinued)
