Miss Rumphius Mittens
These mittens are a great choice for girls and teens, as well as women. Knit in Maine’s own Quince & Co. Chickadee yarn, they are cozy and warm, in cheerful colors that are just the thing to brighten up drab winter days. This design has a comfy hem with a decorative picot edge, making it a great choice for a dressy mitten.
While the pattern calls for 8 colors, only 2 are ever in use in any one round, with no carry longer than 5 stitches. The thumb has a gusset and is located slightly onto the palm of the hand, making for an excellent fit, and causing no distortion of the pattern when worn.
Three sizes are included, all calling for the same gauge and yarn. There is a separate chart for each size. These will fit a range of sizes including most adults and older children.
