Printed Pattern by local designer, Alanna Penk

Driftless Mitts are the companion to the Driftless Hat pattern. Both hat and mitts can be made using just 2 x 100g skeins of Malabrigo Rios, and both are great first-time colourwork projects. With only 10 rows of stranded colourwork, and an option to knit flat or in-the-round, this pattern is a good way to ease into a new skill!  They were named after the rolling hills of the Driftless Region in Western Wisconsin.

Construction:
These mitts are fast, easy and rewarding, and would be an excellent first-time colourwork project. They are knit in the round- with the option to knit flat- from the bottom up, increasing to create the thumb, and following a simple colourwork chart at the top.
Gauge: 22 stitches and 28 rows = 10cm stocking stitch
Needles: 3.25 mm double pointed needles
3.25 mm straight needles (only if working flat)
Notions: stitch markers and tapestry needle

Yarn:
DK Weight/8 ply or worsted weight/10 ply to achieve gauge
Main Colour (bottom): 70m - 88m
Second Colour 2 (top): 5m-8m 

Shown here: Malabrigo Rios in Cloud Sunshine and Frank Ochre
Finished Size:
The finished size is about 8cm wide and 19cm tall. They will fit an average adult hand with a slim fit, and older children’s hands as well.
