Treat your hands to the amazing softness and warmth of luxury yarn like yak, cashmere, quiviut, or buffalo. Cold-climate critters produce fibres that are light, lofty and very warm. On the worst winter days, wear these as liners under a heavier mitten - like a secret undergarment for your hands!

For warmer climates, these mittens make a light layer of protection against the chill when worn alone, and they can be worked in fingering weight/sock yarns of any fibres.

Full mittens will need 145 (175, 230, 280) yds/135 (160, 210, 255) m. Fingerless mitts will need 110 (135, 175, 210) yds/100 (125, 160, 190) m.

Mittens and mitts are worked in the round using needles appropriate for a small diameter (double-pointed, two circulars or magic loop on one long circular, as you prefer) and feature a ribbed cuff and a gusset thumb.

This pattern has been professionally tech edited.

Luxury Liners are great on their own and even better as liners under a heavier mitten. If you purchase this pattern (or already own it) you can buy either Shall We Mitts - Worsted or Shall We Mitts - Bulky and save 40% off the second pattern. Simply add the new pattern to you cart on Ravelry and enter the code ALLTHEMITTENS before checking out.

A note about these photos: I try to employ capable and talented photographers to take lively, clear photos of my samples. This design was completed just as the COVID-19 pandemic was making itself known, and when interaction outside our household was not recommended. It’s pretty tricky to take clear photos of one’s own hands! I may update them at some point when whim and opportunity provide, but for now they remain as a small indicator of the context we all experienced.
