This is a lovely half mitten, perfect for mild winters - like the kind we get out here in Vancouver - and days when there is a bit of chill, but not enough to send you to the cupboard to dig out the full mittens. Made in a chunky hand spun are a bit Dickensian; made with wool blended with silk and alpaca, they are downright elegant. You can modify the cuff to give you whatever look you want. Knit in the round on four size 5mm needles, they knit up so quickly you will find yourself making a pair for every occasion. They also make great gifts.

You can make these in many sizes. The size listed is for a small woman’s hand, to make medium, add two stitches at the cast on, for large add four stitches.
