Sitting In Trees (PDF)


I knit my mitts using a gauge of 4.5 stitches per inch in the twisted seed stitch rib. This gave me an 8 inch palm following the smaller size (36 stitch cast on). You can easily change the size of your finished mitts by varying yarn weight and gauge. The table below lists stitches per inch, cast on number, and finished palm size. The stitch pattern necessary for your gauge swatch is written below in the materials section.
