Vagabond Fingerless Mitts KAL

Difficulty: 3-Intermediate


Welcome to the Vagabond Fingerless Mitts KAL!

Vagabond Fingerless Mitts KALThe Vagabond Fingerless Mitts are a striking design incorporating Fair Isle, Latvian, and Scandinavian knitting techniques. There’s a lot to learn in this small project but don’t worry, we’ll help you every step of  the way! Size : Women’s medium Vagabond is designed to have a close fit and will accommodate many sizes simply by adjusting the length of the hand above the thumb. It’s quite stretchy in the merino and will fit most, but the width can also be adjusted by going up or down a needle size, or removing and adding stitches to either side of hand chart and palm stripes.

In this KAL you will learn how to:
  • Read a colorwork chart
  • Knit with 2 colors at a time
  • Do a Latvian braid
  • Knit Fair Isle
  • Knit a double thumb gusset
  • Knit a corrugated rib
  • Use a lifeline to avoid ripping out all your work

Participants must know how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off in the round prior to starting this KAL.

Recommended Supplies
  • Two skeins of medium weight fingering yarn (110 yds of each). A third color can be added to the cuff if you choose.
  • 1.5 US / 2.5 mm double pointed needles, or size needed to obtain gauge – or whatever style needle you prefer for knitting in the round
  • Scrap yarn to hold thumb stitches and for a lifeline
  • Stitch markers

KAL Store For your convenience, we have available for sale the yarn and pattern you need for this KAL. Save time and support our small business by purchasing what you need here. You will need 1 skein each in 2 colors. If you would like to add a 3rd color to your cuff, you will need another skein. We do not recommend mixing the 2 brands in one project.
