This design complements my «Shepherd Socks» further representing my passion for protecting and growing the wool of the rare, heritage breed of sheep - the Grå Trøndersau (Gray Trøndelag sheep) through the year.
Yarn: The mittens were designed and knit with Rauma 2 ply Gammelserie garn. Rauma Gammelserie has a gauge of 28 sts = 10 cm, using 2.5 mm needles.
You will need 1 - 50 gram ball of Colour A- MC GL403 Lys grå melert (light heathered gray) and 1– 50 gram ball of Colour B -CC GL410 Sauesvart (black sheep).
This is a total of 100 grams and 320 meters.
The mittens were designed to use only 100% pure Norwegian wool or pure, local wool of a similar gauge.
You can find the original Shepherd Mitten Yarn Kit here.
Needles: 2.5 mm, or the needle size you need to obtain gauge.
Gauge: 28 sts = 10 cm
Length of the mitten: 27 cm (10 1/2 inches)
Length of the cuff: 9 cm (3 1/2 inches)
Length of the thumb: 7.5 cm (3 inches)
Please note that the pattern is fully charted and has the option of a male or female Shepherd design. Or both! x
