West Sands Mitt is the second pattern in the Tuvstarr Collection which celebrates the return of one of my favourite yarns, Faery Wings from Fyberspates, and the continuous beauty of its sibling, Curly Silk from Dibadu. Add the magical colours of DyeForYarn’s MoFluff and you have countless combinations to play with.

Five Tuvstarr patterns are released on random days 18–23 December.

Note: If you buy a single pattern from the collection and change your mind and wish to buy the collection, one pattern can later be applied toward the Collection and is deducted automatically.

West Sands Mitt is knitted top down in stripes – why not use remnants? Seven-row stripes in three colours is one way to go, but feel free to make your own stripes or other colour work.

The mitt begins and ends with two layers for a snug and cosy fit. There is a Left and a Right Mitt so that the colour joins are slightly offset toward the palm. But really, you could knit two identical mitts and not worry about left and right.

3 Sizes: XS/child (M, L)

TO FIT: 15 (18, 20.5) cm / 6”(7”, 8”) circumference

For a large, smaller or in between sizes mitt, try going up or down a needle size, and/or try a heavier or thinner yarn.
