Prairie Glass Mitts
Short Description: Modern mitts spotlight a intarsia motif inspired by the stained glass windows of iconic American designer Frank Lloyd Wright.
Gauge: 20 sts and 32 rnds = 4” (10 cm) in stockinette after blocking
Finished Measurements: CIRCUMFERENCE: 7½ (8¼, 9)”, LENGTH: 7¼ (8, 8)”
Materials Used: YARN: In worsted weight yarn:
- MC - 110 (115, 120) yds [100 (105, 110) m]
- CC - 6 1/2 yds [6 m]
Sample was knit with Huckleberry Knits American Dream Worsted (100% Targhee wool; 122 yards/50g) in Black Walnut (MC) and Early Harvest (CC). This pattern was originally designed as a kit in collaboration with Huckleberry Knits and the gradient colorway used for CC and shown in the photographs isn't widely available. I recommend using stripes of gradient mini skeins to mimic the effect or try a handspun, self striping, or solid color yarn for a different look.
NOTIONS: 4 stitch markers, 2 stitch holders or scrap yarn for holding sts, darning needle for weaving ends.
Needle Size: dpns and straight or circular needles in US 6 (4 mm) or size required to achieve gauge.
Pattern Includes: written and charted directions
