Inspired by Gandalf, these simple mitts warm your hands as you adventure through Middle Earth. Primarily knit then flipped inside out for those who wish to avoid purling.

Two cuff variations allow for either a more masculine or more feminine mitt.

Medium: 7.5” hand circumference
Large: 8” hand circumference

Both a medium and a large can be made from 400 yds of fingering weight yarn.


The required needle length read 80” long when it should have read 80 cm long. This is corrected on pattern versions released 11th of December 2013 and later.
