In this week’s tutorial, we show you how to knit mittens using the yarn we’ve designed for Schachenmayr. See the tutorial here:

MATERIALS:

Yarn: Merino Extrafine 120, DK weight 120 m / 131 yds. Colours designed by ARNE & CARLOS. We’ve designed this yarn in 5 different colours: Douvre, Lesja, Gausdal, Lom and Ringebu. Get the yarn here: https://arnecarlos.com/yarn

Yarn amount: 2 balls of 50 gram balls, total 100 grams.

Needles: U.S. size 2 – 3 / 3 and 3,5 mm set of dpn.

Gauge: 10cm = 27 sts

 

Instructions:

CO 48 sts on 2 / 3mm, divide st son 4dpn = 12 sts on each needle.

Join, being careful not to twist cast-on rpw.

Work around in k2, p2 rib for 8cm.

Change to larger dpn.
