A koha is a gift from the heart.

Just in time for the gift giving season, these mitts are the ideal gift for that special person in your life. Knit in worsted weight yarn they are also a lovely quick and satisfying project that you’ll want to make again and again. The long cuffs keep the chill out while the feature thumb gusset ensures a perfect fit.

Materials required:
YARN: 1 skein (heavy) Worsted or Aran weight yarn. Look for something with good stitch definition.
I used Fresh from the Cauldron MCN Worsted which is 169m/115g. This is a plump, smooth and plied yarn with lovely bounce and sheen.

NEEDLES: Your choice of needles for knitting small circumference in the round. I prefer magic loop but this pattern will work with other methods such as DPNs. 4 mm or the size you need to obtain gauge.

NOTIONS: 1 st marker, small amount of waste yarn, needle for weaving in ends.

Skills required:
Knitting small circumference in the round, basic increase/decrease stitches, cable pattern is worked by twisting stitches and does not require a cable needle.

Koha is a Te Reo Maori word, pronounced ‘kor-ha’. It is both a traditional Maori custom of reciprocity and an everyday term in New Zealand that can cover all sorts of donations and gifts; of money, time, things or food. A koha is a sign of appreciation and aroha.
