Every die hard hockey fan has superstitions and traditions that are strictly adhered to in playoff season. For good reason: you do whatever it takes to get the win. These Lucky Mitts will keep your hands warm while your team stays hot.

Fiona has designed a pair of mitts in her signature style, using rib stitches and slight cable turns to represent hat tricks, hockey rink lines and hockey sticks. A mini pocket holds a lucky loonie, transit ticket or other valuable trinkets. And because our Hat Trick skeins are so big, you’ll be able to get two pairs of Lucky Mitts from one ball of yarn! Fiona’s mitts are shown (above) in the Vancouver colourway.

Gauge is very important; please check to ensure that your mitts come out the correct size.

Use US size 2 / 2.75 mm needles for working in the round: DPNs, 2 circulars or 1 long circular as you prefer.
