Notes

These are another pair of Jenn Wisbeck’s fingerless mittens designs. I love knitting these. The pattern is really fun and the Berocco Ultra Alpaca Light knits up so nicely. I’m using a #2 circular, doing Magic Loop. The pattern called for a fingering weight yarn on #1 needles. I know what gauge I get doing two color stranding on that size needle with that weight of yarn and I knew the mittens would be too small. So I’m using a DK weight with #2 needles and the size is perfect. I’m getting 7 to 7-1/2 stitches per inch. The alpaca and the two stranded knitting makes these mittens very thick and warm.
