1 Moonlit Coast Mittens

This pattern is inspired by the rocky shoreline of Nova Scotia. These mittens are perfect for anyone yearning for the sea.

The pattern is for a women’s medium, 7.5 inch hand circumference.
For larger or smaller sizes, change needle size and/or yarn weight to achieve desired gauge. Generally, needle size increases length more and yarn thickness increases width more.

Thumb has a side gusset.

Any fingering weight yarn in contrasting colors. I used Zwerger Garn Opal 4-Fach in white and marine.

Needles in size needed to obtain gauge. (This ranged from 2.0mm - 2.5mm with test knitters.
Tapestry needle. Stitch markers if desired. Scrap yarn or stitch holder for holding thumb stitches.

This pattern is appropriate for an intermediate stranded knitter.
