Muffatees, the simplest kind of mitt, no fingers or thumbs, just an open-ended tube of knitting with a thumb-hole in the side. Runrig muffatees – named for the ploughed ridges and dividing runnels that characterized the early agricultural landscape in the UK and that are echoed in the mitt’s construction – are knitted from side to side in one piece, in either Aran or DK weight yarn. The Aran yarn gives a sturdy, practical mitt, the DK a longer, softer, more elegant mitt. The pretty picot-point edging at fingers and thumb is easy to work, and the three needle bind off gives a seamless comfort.

All my patterns are available free of charge, but if you would consider making a small donation to you would make me a very happy bunny indeed.

As requested I have given sizing variations for child, teen and larger woman in addition to the original average adult woman size. Please note that not all of these variations have been test knitted at this time.

Uses no more than two 50g balls of either of the recommended yarns. Please note that if substitute yarns are used results may differ. Cotton/linen/hemp yarns and blends are not recommended.
