Modern mitts spotlight a graphic motif inspired by the stained glass windows of iconic American designer Frank Lloyd Wright. This pattern was originally designed as a kit in collaboration with Huckleberry Knits and the gradient colorway used for CC and shown in the photographs isn’t widely available. I recommend using stripes of gradient mini skeins to mimic the effect or try a handspun, self striping, or solid color yarn for a different look.

Pattern is written for 3 sizes to accommodate most teen and adult hands. Directions are given for smallest size with changes for larger sizes in parentheses as follows: SM (MD, LG).
CIRCUMFERENCE: 7½ (8¼, 9)”
LENGTH: 7¼ (8, 8)”

To find your size, measure around your palm above the crook of your thumb. Choose the size that’s circumference is closest to - a little bit of negative ease is fine. Sample shown is Adult S on a 7½” palm circumference with ½” negative ease.

YARN: In worsted weight yarn:
MC - 110 (115, 120) yds 100 (105, 110) m
CC - 6 1/2 yds 6 m

Sample was knit with Huckleberry Knits American Dream Worsted (100% Targhee wool; 122 yards/50g) in Black Walnut (MC) and Early Harvest (CC).

NEEDLES: dpns and straight or circular needles in US 6 (4 mm) or size required to achieve gauge.

NOTIONS: 4 stitch markers, 2 stitch holders or scrap yarn for holding sts, darning needle for weaving ends.
