Do you have lots of left over yarn from various projects? Well here’s one way of using up that fingering or sock yarn and making a pair of fingerless Marled Mitts. These are inspired by frosty, sleety Winter mornings.

These are a seamless design, knit in the round, using two strands of yarn held together all the way through. It’s all Knit, no purling, just your best mate stocking stitch in the round!

These Marled Mitts are knit with the leftovers from my summer Reef Breeze shawl - the beautiful ‘Meadow’ from The Fibre Company. There are two sizes - a Small, and a Medium - Large size.

Sizes: Small (Medium - Large).
Finished Length: 20cm / 8” – both sizes
Finished Circumference (at widest point around hand): 16.5 (18.5)cm / 6.5 (7.25)”

Measurements taken with relaxed (not stretched) fabric, after blocking.
