Join the knitalong and watchalong, starting in January, in the Little Skein Ravelry group.

These charming fingerless mitts bring to life one of Fraulein Maria’s favorite treats: crisp apple strudel. An off-kilter cable echoes overlapping layers of flaky pastry, and twisted ribbing gives a nod to traditional Bavarian stitch patterns. The cable is made solely of 3x3 right and left crosses, but the final effect is much more complex and striking.

Skill level: Advanced beginner and up

Skills needed:

  • Knitting in the round
  • Increases and decreases
  • Putting stitches on waste yarn
  • Picking up stitches

Finished size: The pattern includes two sizes of mitts: short (wristers) and long. Mitts fit palm circumference of 7 to 8 inches (18 to 20.5 cm) with zero to slightly negative ease. Long mitts are 10.25 inches (26 cm) from top of mitt to bottom of cuff, and short mitts are 7 inches (18 cm).

Pattern available as part of e-book only.
The individual pattern will be available for purchase in early May.
