 Fingerless mitts knitting kit - Basket Stitch & Rib - 4ply 100% Pure New British Wool  

This Kit for a pair of fingerless mitts contains a pattern and 50 grms of 4ply Pure New British Wool.  In addition to the kit you will need size 2.75mm and size 3.25mm needles and a tpestry/sewing needle.   The pattern gives instructions for the mitts to be knitted flat with the side seam sewn up after completion of the knitting.  The finished length is 6.5" and the width should fit an average size ladies hand. However, instructions are given in the pattern to increase the length if required and a larger size can be knitted if 3mm & 3.5mm needles are used.   

Currently, there are  six yarn options available - Shetland Off White, Mid Brown or Mid Grey, Jacob Mid Grey or Dark Grey and Shetland/Castlemilk Moorit Beige.  These beautiful yarns have all been spun at the Natural Fibre Company in Cornwall using personally selected fleeces from flocks of pedigree Shetland Sheep which graze on conservation grade land at a local nature reserve, Castlemilk Moorit sheep which are based at a large Country estate or Jacob sheep owned by a local smallholder.   You will find a fuller description of the yarns in their individual listings in my shop.  Please bear in mind that when using single breed yarns, there can be some very slight variance in the thickness depending on the breed, although they are all spun to a standard 4 ply thickness.  Doing a small 2" x 2" test swatch will help determine whether you need to use smaller or larger needles. 

In order to keep your mitts looking nice, always wash gently by hand using warm water and wool wash liquid.  Do not rub or use agitation.  Rinse in same temperature water then squeeze out excess water by rolling in a towel.  Dry flat away from direct heat.

The pattern included in the kit is my original design and is intended for personal use only.  Please do not reproduce or sell this pattern or any products created from it.
