The iridescent colors of the kingfisher were the inspiration for the design of my „Eisvogel Mittens“. They are made of 8 colors of Shetland yarn from Jamieson’s of Shetland and together with the „Eisvogel Hat“ form a beautiful set.
The mittens are knitted in the round on double pointed needles. For the fit, I took into account the anantomy of the hand in terms of the thumb being slightly offset inward and the different finger slopes for the right and left hand.
Skill level: for experienced knitters
Finished size: 25,5 cm length x 10 cm width (size M)
The mittens fit a hand circumference between 18.5 cm and 21 cm. The model in the photos has a hand circumference of 18.5 cm. Needles and yarn of a different size and weight can be used to change the size.
Yarn: 200 g Jamieson’s of Shetland Spindrift (25 g/ 105 m) – 8 different colors (also enough for the „Eisvogel Hat“)
The digital pattern includes photos, a knitting technique tutorial, understandable knitting instructions with explanatory photos and clear colored charts (separately for the left and right mitten).
