Meet the Black Bears, the most recent member of the Green Forest Gang! They are shy and lazy, but can be tempted out to play with the promise of sweet golden honey! Knitted in the round on DPNs with 100% wool, these fingerless mitts are perfect for wearing during the fall before hibernation mode.

Needles & Notions

Gauge
24 sts per 10 cm / 4” in pattern on 4.5mm (US 7)

Notes
If you’re knitting more than three sts of the same colour, tack down the second colour on the WS to prevent long floats. Break your yarn if you won’t be using that colour in the next several rounds, leave a tail to weave in later. If you would like a smaller fit you can drop the needle size down to 3.25mm (US 3) & 4mm (US 6).
