If you like this, but prefer gloves, check out my Texel Gloves!
Texel is an island in the North Sea and the stitch patterns of these fingerless mittens remind me of the waves of the sea. Knit them in sea and beach colours, as shown here, or make it a colourful, abstract pattern. Why not use up all those little leftover bits of wool to make each row of waves a different colour?
The sizes are Women’s XS/S, M and L, with 17, 19 and 20.5cm (= 6⅝, 7⅜, 8⅛”) mitten circumference above thumb, to fit hands of same size or larger. The stitch pattern stretches well to provide a good fit.
Meters/yardage is given in full Regia 4ply skeins (1 skein for each colour).
The pattern provides detailed written instructions (6 pages) with illustrations.
Lots of thanks to all my wonderful test knitters!
