by Sybil R
February 2014
Fingering (14 wpi) ?
US 2½ - 3.0 mm

This pattern is available for free.

Knitted in one piece these mitts form a “figure eight” shape around the thumb by increasing in the first part of a row and decreasing in the second part. The pattern includes illustrations concerning construction and topology.

A danish version was written by MarianneHo and is available here: http://strikkeglad.dk/2009/ottetalsvanter/

Renate Schattschneider (wwmaid) wrote German versions for this pattern:

A crochet version of this pattern is also available on Ravelry called Octavo Fingerless Gloves.

I was asked a few times about the yarn I used:

  • For the green-blue ones I used a very cheap variegated sock yarn bought at a discounter in 2012 - it’s listed here: http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/vendita-sockenwolle (Colorway 555)

  • For the red-yellow-green ones, I used Schoeller. I guess Noro sock would give similar results.
