Quick and simple to knit, these nifty netted mitts complement any outfit and keep your hands warm, too. They take very little yarn and look great in any colour.
This pattern is for a knitter who is comfortable knitting in the round and switching to rows for a thumb hole.
These mitts take around 1 1/4 skeins of Garnstudio DROPS Big Merino yarn to make. I used the colourway Anthracite. However, you can use any worsted or aran weight yarn you prefer. You’ll need the rest of the skein to make a gauge swatch/tension square, so it won’t go to waste. 😉
The pattern as written provides for one size only (it should fit an average adult woman’s hands) – however, instructions are given for adjusting the width. The main stitch used is charted for rounds and for rows, as you will need to do both to make this mitt.
