Mulberry Fingerless Gloves


'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 pattern is available as an instant digital download from Ravelry and my online shop.

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.

  2. Lovely colours and textures in those gloves.
    Cheers, Gail.
    PS This very evening, I've been working hard converting your shetland yarn into a 'Nordic snowflake beanie' for myself (pattern downloaded from Ravelry). The yarn knits up to a beautiful texture. I just now need to buy some double pointed needles to finish the hat).

    Just had a look on Ravelry at the Nordic Snowflake beanie, it looks a great hat to knit, hope you have enough Shetland yarn. Looking forward to seeing it...
