Knitting *tips & tricks
What's Steph Knitting?


Well it took me almost a year, but I finally released my Hansel Mittens.  


The companion to Ysolda's Gretel beret, these mittens knit up fast in heavy worsted or aran weight yarn and have a lattice cable pattern inspired by the beret.


The pattern includes charts and line-by-line instructions and is available on Ravelry for $5.00.  

The mittens have an 8" /20cm hand circumference and are 9.5" / 24 cm long.  For smaller mittens, knit to a tighter gauge.

I used Foxhill Farms Cormo Cross, but any worsted/aran weight yarn would do--about 220yds/200 metres.

So if you made Gretel you can get all matchy and have warm hands this winter.


I think mitchy matchy is fun. They look like a perfect companion knit.

Very pretty! Maybe I'll just make the mittens and forgo the beret :)

Loved knitting these, and love wearing them even more. Will have my Ravelry project up soon, once I get a decent photo of the mitts!
