PATTERN DETAILS

A pair of colourwork Daleks fight it out on these toasty stranded mittens! In addition to stranded colourwork, skills used in this pattern include knitting in the round, tacking down long floats, grafting or Kitchener stitch, and duplicate stitch. If you are new to stranded knitting, I recommend starting with the co-ordinating INSULATE! hat, which is simpler. Pattern is for personal use only. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit in the round stranded knitting chart reading pick up stitches kitchener stitch / grafting duplicate stitch tacking down long floats GAUGE 23 stitches and 33 rows = 4 inches in stockinette SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS To fit women's medium, or 7.5" palm circumference. Other sizes can be made by adjusting your gauge (changing needle size and/or yarn thickness). SUGGESTED YARN 240 yards of DK weight

Recommended with this pattern

  • 3.5mm double pointed needles (or long circular needle for magic loop), or size required to get gauge
  • DK-weight yarn in two colours. Approximately 150 yards of your main/background colour, and 90 yards of your contrasting colour.
  • 3mm double pointed needles (or long circular needle for magic loop) or 2 sizes smaller than your main needles, for the ribbing.

I learned to knit as a child, hated it, then learned to crochet as a uni student, and loved it! It was a slippery slope to a total yarn obsession - knitting, crochet, spinning, designing, I love it all!
