Knit PDF - Magnificent Mittens / World Knits Collection Download
Colorful Mitten Pattern in 6 sizes and 2 versions for babies to adults.
Gauge: 24 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in Fair Isle
Needle size: US 4 - 3.5 mm double pointed needles
The pictorial version of Magnificent Mittens is based on the traditional shape of the Scandinavian or Latvian mitten. Commonly, most people think of these mittens featuring motifs including snowflakes or floral designs. The version before you is a bit funkier - charts reflect my interests in animal and floral life, gardening, pottery, and primitive culture’s motifs. Pattern includes 6 sizes of knit in the round colorful mittens. Includes pictorial version and striped Fair Isle verstions. Two different tip shapings are included.
Magnificent Mittens are part of The World Knits Collection designed by Kristin Nicholas. There are 15 different stranded knitting projects which are designed to stretch a knitter’s skills. Each pattern includes instructions and many charts for the knitter to design their own project mixing Fair Isle charts with different stitches. The original kits included 6 colors of yarn, the pattern booklet and a color postcard of the project. Magnificent Mittens was originally published in 1993.
The World Knits Collection is designed for adventuresome and experienced knitters who aren’t afraid to take off on their own and modify charts and directions. Back in the day, it was a very successful project with knitters all over the country making lots of unique projects. All of the sample projects photographed were made by adventurous knitters and me. With the republication of the World Knits Collection, I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
The original yarn Tapestry (50 grams/93 yards) is no longer available. Cascade 220 and Valley Yarns’ Northampton are good substitutes. If you have a stash of Color By Kristin (Classic Elite) or Julia (Nashua Handknits), they will work too.
