Calystegia Mitts are knit from the fingers to the cuff and designed to match with Calystegia Cowl, but of course you may wear them separately as well.
This pattern is charted and is very versatile as there are charts given for three different stitch amounts, so it’s easy to adjust mitts smaller or bigger by choosing finer or thicker yarn and a version with less or more stitches.
Needles and gauge in stockinette stitch:
30 sts version: US 7-8 / 4.5 - 5 mm dpns, 15 - 17 sts per 10 cm (4 ins)
42 sts version: US 4 / 3.5 mm dpns, 21 - 23 sts per 10 cm (4 ins)
48 sts version: US 2.5 / 3 mm dpns, 24 - 27 sts per 10 cm (4 ins)
or needles suitable for your yarn and desired gauge
This pattern is stretchy, so an accurate gauge is difficult to give.
You will also need one spare needle (dpn) and 1 - 2 stitch holders or waste yarn.
Yarn weight and yardage:
30 sts version: about 100 m / 110 yards of aran or bulky weight wool or wool blend
42 sts version: about 115 - 130 m / 126 - 142 yards of DK weight wool or wool blend yarn (250 m / 275 yards per 100g)
48 sts version: about 130 - 140 m / 142 - 153 yards of sport or fingering weight wool or wool blend yarn (320 m / 350 yards per 100 g)
or yarn of your choice to obtain desired gauge
Be prepared, that you may need more yarn. Yardage depends a lot on your yarn and needle choice.
