girl´s best friend

The pattern for these fingerless mittens, and the cowl, is finally ready…….as you can see  on the sidear to the right.

I used blue sky alpacas  alpaca and silk but other DK weight yarns should work just fine.


approx 5.28 oz / 438 yards of DK / 8ply. I used 3 skeins of alpaca silk from blue sky alpacas. ( Approx 1 skein for mittens).


3.5 mm / US 4 circular and five double pointed for the fingerless mittens ( or you could use 2 circulars for the mittens

instead of the dpns).


12 buttons and a stitch holder.


18sts and 8 rows in pattern  = 2.5 x 8 cm ( 1 x 3 1/8 inch) after blocking.

Finished measurements:


length is approx 26 cm / 10 ¼ inches and circumference is approx 61 cm/ 24 inches.

Fingerless mittens:

length from top to bottom is approx 35,5cm/14 inches and circumference at widest part is approx 22cm/ 8 ¾ inches.
