The inspiration for this pattern comes from a cardigan from the fifties. I thought that the pattern was stylish and that it fit regardless of gender or age so I decided to make the pattern into a mitten.
Size: Approximately normal man’s hand or bigger ladyhand. Unfortunately I forgot to measure the mitten before I packed it down in a box and moved to Spain, but I think it measures around 22-23cm (9 inches) around.
A similar mitten has this gauge: 28m x 27v = 10x10cm / 4 inches
Needles: A set of 3mm dpn:s (US2). For a smaller size (for example smaller lady’s hand) change to needle 2,5mm (US1)
Yarn: Sport/fingering wool yarn in 3 different colours.
