The colorwork patterns on these fun-to-knit mittens resemble cut-outs (Tijeras means scissors in Spanish). Four colors of organic yarn are used: Plum, Mulberry, Evergreen, and Lilac. The mittens are knit from cuff to tip and feature a peasant thumb and a ribbed cuff. Because the yarn used is a thick fingering weight and it is so elastic, consider using a sport weight yarn to make gauge if substituting yarns. Separate charts are given for each hand to ensure the row joins are on the outside of the mitten.
These mittens will fit a women’s size small. The width of the mittens is 8”/20 cm and the length from cuff to tip is 11”/28 cm.
