Including basic knitting techniques!

The mittens are about 37 cm/ 14 9⁄16“ long. It is very important to find an equivalent yarn to ensure that the mittens fit. Knit a gauge! For 10 cm/4” square you should have 12 stitches 20 rows.

You need:
• 150 Grams/ 5.3 ounces wool with a yardage of 48 meters/ 52.5 yards per 50 grams/ 1.75 oz.
• 1 set of 5 double pointed knitting needles sized according to the yarn. Use a half size larger (if you are a tight knitter) to a size smaller (if you are a loose knitter), so the mittens will be knit a bit tighter. In this example needles size 7 (US 10½) were used.
• 1 meter/ 1 yard of left over yarn to be used as a helping thread
• Yarn needle
• Scissors
