I was given an opportunity to knit a design for Jimmy Beans Wool Madelinetosh Toshstrology Collection for the month of March (Aries). With one skein of Tosh Sport, I designed The Arietis Mitts (the name comes from a group of the most prominent stars in the Aries constellation). Twisted stitches create a textured pattern with the use of increases and decreases for a wavelike effect.

MATERIALS:
One skein of Madelinetosh Tosh Sport Yarn – Jimmy Beans Wool Exclusive: March 2016 Aries. (100% Superwash Merino Wool. 270 yds.)
US 5 DPNs (a circular needle for the magic loop technique may also be used).
Three stitch markers
Tapestry needle.

GAUGE AND MEASUREMENTS:
About 22 sts and 24 rows in stockinette – 4”
Blocked measurements: About 10” in length and about 8” in circumference for each glove.

PATTERN NOTES:
This pattern has instructions to accommodate DPN’s or magic loop technique. This pattern uses less than a skein of Tosh Sport, so you will have plenty of yardage for more repeat sections if you wish.
