PATTERN DETAILS

Making the most of a wild colourway of self-striping yarn, the Fletcher Mitts are worked in garter stitch chevrons for a fun and funky look. The yarn is worked from two skeins to provide the contrasting rows. The mittens start at the cuff with two triangles, quickly joined and then worked in the round, leaving a slit for the afterthought thumb. The tops are cast off with a three needle bind off, maintaining the chevrons through the last rows. The original pair of mittens was designed and knit for my friend Moira for the holiday season in 2009. At her request, they are named after the occupation of "fletcher", or arrow-maker. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl increase and decrease work in the round GAUGE 18 sts and 40 rows / 4 inches on 4.0mm needles in garter stitch. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 1 size, fits most women
