Pattern re-release: Frost

pinterest_2.png

The Frost mittens, inspired by classic Scandinavian motifs, feature a large Nordic star, bands of colourwork, and a lining for extra warmth. Worked in Icelandic Lettlopi, these mittens will keep your fingers toasty from the winter solstice to the spring equinox.

These mittens are worked from the cuff up with thumb gussets. The outer mitten is worked first, then stitches are picked up around the inside of the cuff and the lining is worked in the opposite direction. Once completed, the lining is tucked into the outer mitten.

SIZING

Size

Adult S/M [Adult M/L] to fit 19 [21] cm/7.5 [8.25]” hand circumference as measured at the knuckles

Sample shown is Adult M/L

Finished Dimensions

18.5 [20.5] cm/7.25 [8]” inner circumference, 21 [23] cm/8.25 [9]” outer circumference, 21 [23.5] cm/8.25 [9.25]” hand length, 26.5 [29] cm/10.5 [11.5]” total length

Choose a size with a finished inner circumference approximately 0.5 cm/0.25” smaller than the wearer’s actual hand circumference. This ensures the lining will fit snugly.
