Fall is my favorite season and fall and plaid just seem to go together like peanutbutter and jelly. That is why last year I designed a pair of plaid socks, but I couldn’t get the idea of a matching pair of mittens out of my mind! And so the Woodcutter mittens came to be. The woodcutter mittens feature a stranded outer mitten and a stockinette lining. These are knit separately and then seamed together. The lining has the smooth knit side facing the hand for ultimate comfort. The lining will prevent fingers from catching the floats from the outer mitten as well as provide additional warmth. These mittens will brave the cold winter with you!

The pattern is available in one size: It has a wrist circumference of 6.5” (16,5 cm) and a hand circumference of 7” (18 cm). You can changing the size of the mittens by using bigger or smaller needles or using a heavier or lighter yarn.

The gauge is 9 stitches per inch and 9 rows per inch in stranded pattern with 2.75 mm (US 2) needles.
The gauge is 9 stitches per inch and 11 rows per inch in stockinette with 2.5 mm (US 1.5) needles.
