Quidditch fan and kitty lover? This pattern is for you. The mitts are made all in the round with a thumb gusset. The colorwork is charted only but the pattern contains a lot of written explanations about the structure of the mittens and how to use the charts.

Skill level: intermediate.

Techniques: knit/purl in the round, increase, stranded colorwork.

Yarn: The sample was made in Florencia yarn. But any DK / light worsted weight yarn will work fine too. Make sure there is enough contrast between main color and contrasting color for optimal result.

Main color (MC): 80-100 yards.
Contrasting color (CC): 80-100 yards.

Sizes:
Small / Medium (S/M) = to fit 6.5 to 8” (16.5-20 cm) around hand.
Medium / Large (M/L) = to fit 8 to 9.5” (20-24 cm) around hand.

Gauge:
S/M: 24 stitches x 32 rows = 4” (10 cm) in stranded colorwork (size US 6/4 mm needles).
M/L: 22 stitches x 28 rows = 4” (10 cm) in stranded colorwork (size US 7/4.5 mm needles).

Needle sizes are a suggestion, always use the size that gives you gauge.
Note that stranded colorwork is not very stretchy.

Tools: Size US 6/4 mm or US 7/4.5 mm double pointed needles (or long circular needle if you prefer magic loop) or size to get gauge; tapestry needle; scissors; 2 stitch markers; stitch holder or small length of waste yarn.
