Fiddlehead Mittens

Fiddlehead Mittens

This lined mitten is a must-have for cold Colorado days--the lining keeps the warmth in and the cold out. Small projects are great for learning new techniques, and Fair Isle is the name of this game. Students will also learn how to create an I-cord cast on, read a charted pattern, and work in the round using two circular needles, DPNs, or the Magic Loop.
This pattern lends itself well to different outcomes simply by choosing high contrast solid colors, a self-striping contrast color, or a variegated contrast yarn for a “stained glass” effect.

Measurements: Adult sizes only S (M, L). Due to the pattern stitch count, child’s sizes
will not work for the Fiddlehead Mittens.

To fit palm size: 7.5 (8.25, 9) inches

Pattern: “Fiddlehead Mittens” by Adrian Bizilla

Yarn: DK weight wool in two high-contrast colors—if using a striping or
variegated yarn for the contrast color, avoid using yarns that have any hint of
similar colors! If your yarns are complementary and not contrasting, your pattern
will have a muddled result. Don’t risk your hard work by using complementary

Yardage: 125 yards of main color and approximately 340 for the contrast and
inner lining.

Needles: Two pairs of US size 3 (4, or 5)-24” circular needles —or— one set of
US size 3 (4, 5) DPNs —or— one US size 3 (4, 5)-40” circular needle for the
Magic Loop.

Gauge: 28 (26, 24) sts and 30 (28, 26) rounds in Fair Isle pattern)
NOTE: Please be prepared to adjust your needle size to achieve the stated
gauge of the pattern. The correct gauge is critical to the fit of these mittens.

Your project will be your gauge swatch—we will work on the mittens in the first class and measure your gauge as you work.
