I had so many leftovers of multicolor 4-ply sock yarn in my stack and liked to make something really nice of them. As I really like playing around with colors, this "stash-buster" idea came into my mind. They are easy and quick to knit and also make a great last minute gift. Apart from the two colored ribbings there is only one color in one round. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit and purl Make 1 stitch Knit a corrugated ribbing with two colors GAUGE Knitting gauge: 1 x 1 inch: 9 stitches and 10 rows SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS This mittens fit size S/M and even fit bigger hands.(11.5 cm width (front and back), 21 cm hand circumreference) SUGGESTED YARN 230 yards of Fingering weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Brand is not important :-) COLORWAY I used multicolor and red

Supplies Needed

  • 35 g of self-striping or multicolored left-over 4-ply sock yarn. Best are rainbow colors
  • about 35 g of plain colored (e.g. dark red) left-over 4-ply sock yarn.
  • 5 double pointed needles size 2.75 mm (for normal sized hands) or 3.00 mm (bigger hands)

I'm a hobby pattern creator and love knitting and creating Fair Isle patterns. I wish you as much fun knitting and wearing them as I have designing them! If you like my patterns checkout my patterns at or Ravelry. You can either search for stoperror or find me under the designers as Sandra Jaeger. Please note: Due to the VAT-tax changes taking effect on January 1 2015 I had to delete my on sale Patterns on Craftsy as there is no way to handle the new tax Regulation affecting European buyers via Craftsy. Ravelry tries to come up with a solution. If you are from not EU-based countries or from Germany you can still buy my on sale Patterns as usual via Ravelry. If you are from a European (not Germany) Country unfortunately there is no solution how to handle it at the Moment. Ravelry tries to come up with a solution in the next 6 months. Until then my sales are limited to non EU users and Germany. I'm very sorry for that, but the new rule is very complicated. Jippie we got ourself a Ravelry group: The knitting chartists where you can make pattern requests and take part in our pattern development. T-Shirts gibt's von mir auch bei spreadshirt. News 2016: I can now republish priced standalone Charts that were available at Craftsy on Loveknitting. If you are missing one, please let me know via and I will offer it there and send you an update.
