Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cast on and off

Pattern Description:

Very simple cuffs/mitts that are a little bit 19th century military, a little bit Michael Jackson. :)

Gauge is not hugely important: most standard DK yarns will work. The rib is stretchy and flexible. The Cosy Wool makes them scratchy and rustic, while the Cashmino is beautifully soft.

  • US 6 - 4.0 mm dpns (or circular for magic loop)
  • US 3 - 3.25 mm dpns

  • 12 buttons. I used metal shank, domed brass buttons 9mm and vintage gold plastic ones, 12mm

Heirloom Cashmino or Lincraft Cosy Wool
