koigu cashmere mittens

Koigu Cash Mitts

This pattern is available in three written sizes. The measurements are taken around the knuckles. The tightest part will be around the wrist, so if in doubt, go a size up.

Small: 5″-6″
Medium: 6.5″-7.5″
Large: 8″-9″

The pattern is written with sizes denoted as S (M, L). If no parenthasis are given, the same number applies to all sizes.

Skill Level
Advanced Beginner (ability to knit in the round and do basic increases and decreases)

• Two hanks of Koigu Cashmere or Koigu Kersti yarn.
• Set of US size 3 (3.25 mm) double pointed needles
• Crochet hook to weave in loose ends
• Stitch Markers
• Tapestry needle
• Scrap of yarn or stitch holder

7 stitches and 8.5 rows per inch in stockinette.

this is a simplified mitten version of my how now space cow armwarmers. there is no mini-cabling in the band, and the top of the mitt features an easy sloped decrease. the pattern was written for String in New York, for use mostly with their exclusive Koigu Cashmere (but it would also work in Kersti). the pattern is available for free with purchase of yarn from String. please contact them with questions about ordering (i would still be happy to answer questions about the pattern itself)
