'Mulberry' is a two tone fingerless mitten knitted in aran weight yarn. The cable wristband is knitted first on straight needles in a contrast colour. The main hand section is knitted in the round. Moss stitch border decorates the edges.
The yarn I used is Rowan Felted Tweed Aran weight and the name Mulberry was inspired by the colours of the yarn.
Needles: 6.5mm (US 10 ½ ) straight knitting needles and a set of 4.5mm (US 7) double pointed needles (dpn’s).
Notions: cable needle, tapestry needle, scraps of yarn for markers and for holding thumb stitches.
Size: 17cm (6 ½ ins) long to fit women’s medium hand.
Gauge: 20 stitches over 30 rows = 10cm/4ins
Skills: knit, purl, basic cable, cast on, cast off, pick up stitches, knitting in the round, make a stitch.
