Vagabond Fingerless Mitts KAL

Difficulty: 3-Intermediate


Welcome to the Vagabond Fingerless Mitts KAL!

Vagabond Fingerless Mitts KAL

The 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.
