221B Baker Street
Welcome to 221B Baker Street, where it’s always 1895.
I ask: what could be more quintessentially British than 221B and a properly oriented Union Flag, other than HRH drinking tea with the corgis?
Inspired by the ongoing 221B blanket KAL. Really, I shouldn’t get any credit for this pattern since it’s so simple. I did play a little with the font, though.
This pattern is only available as a chart following traditional Selbu construction and comes with no written instructions. These mittens were designed to accommodate longer fingers than usual and have longer cuffs to keep out the cold.
Pattern gauge of 8.25 stitches per inch using sport weight yarn will produce a ~7.5” circumference mitten that is 11” long.
If you plan to line your mittens, make sure you knit them with an extra .5-.75” ease. You will need approximately 150-200 yards of fingering weight to make a loosely knit liner.
As always, adjusting your gauge and yarn weight to fingering (10 sts/in for 6.5” circumference), DK (7 sts/in for 8.75” circumference), or worsted (6 sts/in for 9.5” circumference) allows this chart to fit almost everyone as desired.
