Comfortable, striped, and fun to knit, Blue Sky Fibers has assembled this mitts kit in their Woolstok yarn. Made of the finest woolen fleece, this worsted-weight yarn is strong and sturdy, gently plied to give it loft, lightness and a soft hand. Kit includes 20 colors in 5 gram mini-hanks, the 21st as a larger hank for the ribbed cuff, and the pattern too. The ribbed cuffs will keep these snug to your wrists, and then it's simple stockinette in the round. All the math, ratios and color sequencing is figured out for you—a quick project that lets you play with every crayon in the box!
Gauge is vital for this project, as the kit includes enough fiber for each stripey section, but no more. Be sure to measure gauge!
This project is geared towards the Advanced Beginner.
