Ruhnu Mitts

Project info
Ruhnu Mitts by Riina Tomberg + Nancy Bush
HandsFingerless Gloves/Mitts
Needles & yarn
US 1½ - 2.5 mm
283 yards = 0.75 skeins
Teksrena Knitting Wool
0.65 skeins = 248.8 yards (227.5 meters), 65 grams
Teksrena Knitting Wool
0.1 skeins = 35.0 yards (32.0 meters), 10 grams

This pattern is for small hands and I have no small hands, more medium-sized hands

And I am learning to knit Travelling Stitches so I decided to knit these mitts with bigger sizes - as exercise to empower me to finally finish my other Ruhnu Mitts (the Mitts from Riina Tomberg’s workshop at the Craft Camp 2018 + the Ruhno ferryboat victim mittens)

The real Ruhnu Mitts are knitted with smaller needles (mostly size 1.25 to 1.5) and more stitches, 96 stitches for example.

So knitting with Teksrena and needles #2.5 is relaxed knitting and I feel more and more comfortable with these patterns.

The first mitt is finished, the second will be cast on this evening

my experience until now:
for me the pattern is not so difficult anymore, but I have to do the Herringbone CastOn with lesser tension

Thank you Riina, you are such a good teacher!


second mitt is 3/4 finished… I enjoy to knit these


now I added some “finished” photos in a cozy winterly afternoon light ;=)

next Ruhnu Knitting is on my needles - socks
