KAL Kickoff!

The Snooker Mitts KAL is underway on Ravelry! It’s a pretty small group right now so join us anytime! Hashtag for IG and Twitter? #snookermittsKAL!

Marled yarn is all the rage right now, and Mountain Colors Twizzle is an awesome example! The silk plied in with the wool take the dye extra brilliantly for that cool effect. Do you have your yarn ready?

The Perspectives kits come in adorable mini-hanks (twisted skeins), but you’ll need to wind them into balls before you can get started. Since I knew I was making a pair of mitts, I wound each skein into a ball then wound half of it off by weight, to make pairs of each colour.


Make sure you know what order you want to use the yarns in – this is mine!


I’m planning to do a few tutorial posts throughout the KAL which runs to August 22 – check out the prizes for joining!

Snooker Mitts: New Pattern and KAL!

New Pattern Release! These fingerless mitts are knitted up in Mountain Colors Perspectives Twizzle. This worsted weight yarn is 85% merino, 15% silk – and the silk is a strand plied with the wool, rather than blended with it. The silk takes dyes differently than wool, so the plied yarn has a great marled effect to it.

Snooker Mitts feature a seed stitch cuff and simple buttonhole thumb. The main body of the mitt is worked in a pattern that mixes seed stitch with slipped stitches, which I really like – the purl stitches really sparkle in the Twizzle yarn.

There are three sizes, and although I personally have small hands, I knit up the Large size to make sure there would be enough yarn!
