Needles: 3.25 mm / US 3 DPNs or circular needle, 80 cm / 32” length for magic loop
Always use a needle size that will result in the correct gauge after blocking.

Notes: Whilst the mitts use the same stitch pattern as the Caswell Bay Hat, the gauge is tighter to produce a denser fabric more suited to warm mitts.
