Kaisla is Finnish and it means Reed. My home lake has a thick bed of reeds on shores.This place is magical when the lake freezes. These mittens are inspired by the beautiful winter days and walks on ice through the bed of reeds.

Kaisla is a classical basic mitten pattern. With this pattern you can knit various different mittens. Just place every time a new stitch pattern on the back of hand.

Kaisla mitten has ribbed cuff, gusseted thumb and square top. The back of hand features an easy lace pattern with some cables on sides.

The pattern has 2 sizes. The sample is knitted with DK weight yarn, size S/M. You can use lighter yarn as well. Choose then the bigger size.
Hand circumference: 18-20 cm (7½-8”)
