 Fingerless mitts knitting kit using 4ply 100% Pure British Wool - Basket Stitch.

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 3.25mm needles, a cable needle and a tapestry/sewing needle.  The mitts are designed to fit an average size ladies hand - a larger size can be made by using size 3mm and 3.5mm needles.  The finished mitts measure approximately 6.5" in length but, instructions  are given in the pattern to make longer mitts if required.   The pattern also includes instructions for two styles of mitts - one has a wrist section knitted in rib, basket stitch for the body of the mitt and stocking stitch for the thumb section.  The alternative style uses basket stitch for the wrist and body sections with stocking stitch for the thumb (see photos above).

Currently, there are 3 colour options available - Shetland Off White, Shetland/Castlemilk Moorit beige and Jacob mid grey.  The yarns have been 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 and Jacob sheep which are owned by a local smallholder. 

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.
