Knit by bit: double moss stitch mitts

A super speedy knit for a chilly day in any weight yarn in gorgeous double moss stitch!

I needed a pair of wrist warmers – something with a little bit of sparkle for a Christmas outing, but something that would work up fast.   Hello Schulana Luxair!  This is now officially my favourite festive yarn!   Chunky weight and shot through with sparkle, Luxair is deliciously soft and cosy next to the skin – my only problem was finding the right stitch to show through this glorious schmuzzy fuzz – I settled on double moss stitch for a hint of texture with a small rib.

You will need:

  • 1 ball Schulana Luxair,  I used Petrol (049)
  • 1 pair 6mm needles
  • A tapestry needle for sewing up.

Cast on 30 stitches

Work a K1, P1 rib for 8 rows.

Begin double moss stitch as follows:

Row 1: P1, K1 to end

Row 2: P1, K1 to end

Row 3: K1, P1 to end

Row 4: K1, P1 to end

Repeat those four rows until your mitt is long enough to reach the first joint of your fingers and cast off.

Sew up the sides of the mitts leaving a hole for the thumb!
