Medley Mitts

The perfect medley is not just an indiscriminate jumble. It’s carefully composed and arranged, and whether you’re creating a medley of tunes or a medley of flavours, the real magic happens in the blend. When you get it just right, the combination seems unexpected, and yet somehow inevitable.

The Medley Mitts are a brisk little knit of colour-blocked happiness. These sweet stripey mitts are fun and fast to knit and comfy to wear. They are fingerless, with snug twisted rib cuffs and a small eyelet detail at the wrist. They are squishy and cosy and so simple to make.

The real fun is in choosing and combining the colours. I’ve used five colourways here, holding two fingering-weight strands double to create a DK weight yarn. But this pattern is an invitation to engage your own creativity! You can marl or fade sock yarns together or work directly with DK minis and scraps you have in your stash, or any combination that catches your fancy.
