My second mitten pattern is available :)

These mittens are called Veerle, after my friend who I knitted them for.

They are knitted in the round, with chevrons in the cuff, and framed by faggoting, on the back of the hand as well. The thumb gusset is shaped with left and right leaning increases.


Skills: This pattern is for daring beginner to intermediate level knitters. Necessary skills are knitting in the round, increasing and decreasing.
Sizing: This pattern is one size, women’s medium. Measurements for the finished mitts are as follows: cuff and top edge circumference of 18 cm (approx. 7”) and wrist of 16 cm (approx. 6.5”).
The mitts will fit hands with circumferences at any of these points between 16 cm (approx. 6.5”) and 19 cm (approx. 7.5”), with different degrees of ease. The cuff edge stretches up to 20 cm (approx. 8”). The top edge of the mitt and thumb can be knitted looser by not switching to smaller needles.
Length measurements of mitt (which will vary when worn depending on ease) are, wrist to cuff edge: 6 cm (approx. 2”), wrist to top edge 13 cm (approx. 5”). You can knit a shorter version at approx 11.5 cm (4.5”) wrist to top edge. 
You can play with gauge and yarn in order to knit a bigger or smaller mitt, a bit of math will be necessary to achieve the desired circumference. The cuff can also be lengthened by adding repeats of the chevron pattern.
The pattern is provided in 8 page PDF format. Spanish translation file will be available soon.
