I call them "KYLA"!

edited October 30th: of course there's a mistake in the pattern. Unfortunately my test knitter never got back to me, but Marianne let me know. So here goes:
in the cuff part: row 16-18: Knit should read instead
row 16-18: P1, K5 * P3, K5 repeat from * to last 2 sts, P2.
The link on the side bar will have the new corrected copy as of October 30.

Also some have trouble with the bobble row. There should be 11 bobbles, each bobble uses up 2 sts NOT 3 sts. To make a bobble you (P1, YO, P1, YO) in 1 sts, P1 next stitch, turn, now you've got 5 sts to work with.


I'm so excited, I can't wait any longer. I had so much fun knitting these fingerless mittens, and wanted to share this fun with you. I'm still waiting to hear from my test knitter, but if she finds a mistake in my pattern I'll let you know.


The three pairs are already spoken for. I have to take a break, knitting some other Christmas gifts, but I'm sure going to knit some more.


The variegated pair, was my first pair, which is not without mistakes, but it was the process. By the last pair, I didn't need to look at the pattern anymore. They knit up fast, and take not even the whole skein. I had 8-10g leftover yarn with all three of them. So, if you have a single skein Koigu kicking around in your knitting basket, you might want to give them a try. ;o)



Did I mention it's free? Here's the link to the download. I wish you lots of fun! And of course, send me some pictures for my Readers Gallery! ;o)

Hey... I could do with those red fingerless mittens! That would be great for winter biking! Maybe I can talk my sister into knitting them for me!

I have just cast these on with some variagated sock yarn and the bobbles are each a different colour, absolutely gorgeous...I had to cast on 65 sts to end up with 45 sts not though. I incresed at every bobble and added one more to make 56sts and now I am off!! Loving the design so much, you clever girl!

Heike said...

Liebe Moni,
Aha! Das Geheimnis ist gelüftet! Diese Handschuhe sind genau richtig für mich - die stricke ich auf jeden Fall!!
Ich bin wieder schwer beeindruckt von Dir und Deinen Fähigkeiten. Boah! Schon alleine das pdf-Dokument ist der Hammer. Würde ich nie hinkriegen...

Liebe Grüsse von der Gealterten!

Manuela said...

die sehen ja mega stark aus - liebe Monika - herzlichen Dank für die tolle Anleitung - die muss ich gleich drucken!

Liebe Grüsse - Manuela

Hello, I just saw your update with corrections to Rows 16-18 of your Kyla mitts. But I'm still confused about the make bobble and the bobble row. In your updated pattern can you please clarify the Make Bobble instructions? To me it still looks like the Make Bobble uses 3 sts. I guess the 'P1 in the next sts' phrase is what is confusing me. Thank you, Sue

picperfic said...

thanks for the clarification Monika...I'll have to knit my other mitten my way and then I'll make more using your bobbles! I did get rather confused but it looks lovely either way! x

tammy said...

Oh, those are so pretty! I thank you and those who will receive some for Christmas thank you too! :)

Violiknit said...

These are the perfect practice mitts for violin playing! I can't wait to make a pair! Thank you for the pattern!!!

drjackie said...

I can't seem to get the download to let me see the pattern. What do I have to do?

murdo said...

What a lovely blog and such lovely patterns! My friend Natalie from The Yarnyard told me about you :) I've added you to my favourites list!!

Missy said...

I just got done with my last project just minutes ago. These are next on my list. Thanks for the pattern!

Hallo Monika, ich habe Deine Kylas erst vor ein paar Tagen gefunden. Mit der englischen Anleitung hab ich mir anfangs schwer getan, aber der erste Probehandschuh ist fertig und schöne Wolle bereits bestellt. Außerdem hab ich auf Deinen Blog verklinkt, hoffe, das ist in Ordnung. Lieben Dank für die tollen Anleitungen. LG Hexe
