Our Wall Is Not For Target Practice
”Bored! Bored! I don’t know what’s gotten into the criminal classes. Good job I’m not one of them.”
”So you take it out on the wall?”
”Ah, the wall had it coming.”
Inspired by the ongoing 221B blanket KAL. Really, I shouldn’t get any credit for this pattern since the original design belongs to beforesunrise, and Nativestar brought it to my attention. I did make the pattern match up on a pair of mittens, though.
Another, larger wallpaper print pattern is available here.
This pattern is only available as a chart following traditional Selbu construction and comes with no written instructions. These mittens were designed to accommodate longer fingers than usual and have longer cuffs to keep out the cold.
These mittens will need between 230 and 270 yards of sport weight yarn. Pattern gauge of 8.25 stitches per inch using sport weight yarn will produce a 7.5” circumference mitten that is 11” long.
If you plan to line your mittens, make sure you knit them with an extra .5-.75” ease. You will need approximately 150-200 yards of fingering weight to make a loosely knit liner.
As always, adjusting your gauge and yarn weight to fingering (10 sts/in for 6.5” circumference), DK (7 sts/in for 8.75” circumference), or worsted (6 sts/in for 9.5” circumference) allows this chart to fit almost everyone as desired.
