• DESCRIPTION

This Bernie knitted mittens pattern was inspired by those worn by Bernie Sanders at Joe Biden’s Inauguration on January 20, 2021.

You have probably seen the photos of the fair isle mittens he wore already and the memes that followed.

This is an excellent project for anyone who loves working with stranded knitting and knitting in the round using the magic loop technique.

These mittens use four colors and are a really quick knit project, I made two in around 2-3 hours.

Yarn

Yarn A - Dark Brown - 1 Skein of Lion Brand New Basic 175 (126) Espresso

Yarn B - Camel - 1 Skein of Lion Brand New Basic 175 (124) Camel

Yarn C - Fisherman - 1 skein of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick.

Yarn D - Barley - 1 skein of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick.

You don’t need a full skein of each color - 50-70g of each will be enough.

Super bulky weight (06)/Super chunky/14 Ply yarn.

The New Basic yarn (Yarns A + B) was knit with 3 strands together to make the yarn super bulky weight.

Needles

Set of 10.00mm (US 15) 9” or 16″ or 20” circular knitting needles.

Please note - if you use a 16” or 20” cable - you will have to knit using the magic loop technique.
