Kilim

But with ten fingers, one can knit these little stranded mittens with their distinctly tribal vibe.

Kilim mittens are worked in the round from wrist to fingertips. The thumb shaping is part welt, part flap for a lovely fit.

Thumbs and hands are shaped with a comfortable curve, and Kitchener stitch is used to graft the final remaining hand stitches.

Finished Size: 7" palm circumference, to fit a woman. To modify fit, adjust needle size

Yarn: Sunday Knits 3 ply Eden (100% merino), Nirvana (92% merino, 8% cashmere), Brigadoon (merino tweed) and Angelic (75% merino, 25% angora).

In eleven High Country colors (as shown):
1 50-gm skein each of Nirvana apple for main and Eden fawn for contrasting colors
and 1 20-gm skein each of Eden in chocolate, violet, sea, lagoon & sage; Angelic in nut; Nirvana in charcoal & moss and Brigadoon in blackish.

Kilim would also be great in two colors - just 1 50-gm skein each of the main and contrasting colors.
