Embla Mittens ENGLISH


This pattern is in English.

Embla mittens are knitted from the wrist towards the fingers with a twisted ribbing, that can be folded, and braided cables on the side of the back of the hand, which become narrower towards the tips of the fingers.

The mittens are knitted with the magic loop technique on a long circular needle, but you can also use double pointed needles in the specified measurements.

Embla Mittens – beautiful knitted mittens with braided cables

Size: S (M) L

Measurements of the mittens: Circumference: 17 (19) 21 cm. Lenght: 27 (28,5) 30 cm.

Measurement guide: To find the right size, measure the circumference of the hand at the knuckles. Sizes S (M) and L correspond to a hand circumference of approx. 17-18 (18-20) 20-22 cm. The mittens fit around the hand. If you have a wide short hand, you may knit size L, but finish as size M. This gives you a wide mitten that is slightly shorter than size L.

Gauge: 21 stitches x 27 rows in stockinette stitch on needle 4,5 mm = 10 x 10 cm.

Suggested needles: Circular needle 3,5 mm (80 cm for the twisted ribbing) and circular needle 4,5 mm (80/100 cm), if you use the magic loop technique. Alternatively, you can use double pointed needles of the same sizes. 4 double pointed needles size 4.5 mm for the thumb. Cable needle size 2,5-4 mm for the cables.

Suggested yarn: approx. 50 (65) 75 g pure wool, e.g. Pernilla from Filcolana (50 g = 175 m) worked with approx. 20 (25) 30 g Silk Mohair, e.g. Lana Grossa (25 g = 210 cm).

Difficulty: Intermediate.
