Isaac Newton was the first to identify the chromatic dispersion phenomenon by demonstrating that white light can break down into a spectrum of colors when it passes through a prism.
It was to put this color theory into images that I created this pattern with the beautiful yarn GEILSK TWEED : a beautiful 100% wool from Ireland 🍀
IN ADDITION TO THE FREE PATTERN, YOU WILL NEED THE FOLLOWING MATERIAL TO KNIT THESE MITTENS:
- GEILSK Tweed [100% laine, 208 yds /50 g] in the following colors (1 ball / 50 g of each color):
- T16 (blue) – A
- T1 (grey) – B
- T22 (magenta) – C
- T11 (green) – D
- Circular needles or double-pointed of 3 mm; #US-2.5 (or size needed to obtain gauge)
- Stitch markers
- Stitch holder or waste yarn
- Tapestry needle
GAUGE : 34 stitches and 38 rows = 10 cm; 4" in stockinette stitch after blocking.
SIZE : Adult one size
NOTES These mittens are worked from the ribs to the fingertips. After completing the ribbing, stitches are increased to create a gusset and prepare the opening for the thumb.
The colorwork pattern is achieved by alternating the two colors A&B with C&D every 6 rounds. There is no need to cut the yarns when you change colors: Carry the color(s) not in use loosely on the WS.
