Pomona Mitts

July 2013
DK / 8 ply (11 wpi) ?
20 stitches and 40 rows = 4 inches in garter stitch
US 6 - 4.0 mm
120 - 140 yards (110 - 128 m)
6.5 (7.5, 8.75)" palm circumference

Professor Pomona Sprout’s fingerless mitts reflect her personality; earthy, robust, and ready for hard work. Cast on provisionally at the outer edge of the hand, they are worked flat using short rows, then grafted for a seamless finish. The cuff is shaped into a point with increases and decreases, and made to flare with a short row wedge. The finger opening is embellished with a spikey picot edge worked by casting on and binding off stitches.

Finished Size: 6.5 (7.5, 8.75)” palm circumference and 7.5 (8.5, 9.5)” length from cuff point to tip.

Other Materials: 2 markers, color A and color B; scrap yarn; stitch holders; yarn needle.

The photos here also show the mitts with ribbon lacing through the yarnovers in the cuff shaping wedge, as originally conceived.
