What’s more fun than knitting little stranded mittens … especially these with their distinctly tribal vibe!

Kilim mittens are worked in the round from wrist to fingertips. The thumb shaping is part welt, part flap for a lovely fit. Thumbs and hands are shaped with a comfortable curve, and Kitchener stitch is used to graft the final remaining hand stitches.

Finished Size: 7” palm circumference, to fit a woman. To modify fit, adjust needle size.

Yarn: Sunday Knits 3 ply (sport weight) in Eden (100% merino), Nirvana (92% merino 8% cashmere), Brigadoon (merino tweed) and Angelic (75% merino 25% angora);

In eleven High Country colors (as shown):
1 50-gm skein each of Nirvana apple for main and Eden fawn for contrasting colors,
and 1 20-gm skein each of Eden in chocolate, violet, sea, lagoon & sage; Angelic in nut; Nirvana in charcoal & moss and Brigadoon in blackish.

Kilim would also be great in two colors:about 200 yds of the main color and 150 yds contrasting color.

Needles & Notions: Size 1 / 2.25 mm: set of 4 or 5 double-pointed (dpn) or circular needles, markers (m); stitch holders; tapestry needle.
