Caldbeck by Tracey Todhunter: crocheted mitts kit

This kit is to make Caldbeck, which are crocheted fingerless mitts. One kit will make one pair of mitts. The kit includes two balls of Milburn DK in your chosen colour, the print pattern which has a pdf download code on, a printed ECY cotton project bag, and a sachet of Soak no rinse wool wash.

 

About the pattern

Ideal for walking the dog in the woods or to keep your hands warm on days out as the weather turns colder, these quick and easy fingerless mitts are a variation of double crochet, which is good for beginners and more experienced crocheters alike. The larger size can be worn on smaller hands as oversized fingerless mitts, with soft smooshy fabric, or the smaller size can be worn as well-fitting, cosy, warm fingerless mitts. They are easily customisable, by adding ruffles top and bottom, or adding in stripes at any point on the hand.

 

Materials

The pattern calls for Whitfell DK but this kit contains two 50g balls of Milburn DK instead which works just as well.

Samples shown use Whitfell DK in Misty Woods (Small), Charcoal (Large) and Milburn DK in Damson.

4.5mm crochet hook (or the size needed to obtain the correct gauge).

A locking stitch marker or a safety pin may be used to mark the last dc of each round if required.
