The Wool and the Gang Nina Mittens kit is a great afternoon project. The result: a pair of gorgeous fingerless mittens so you or someone you love can have warm hands and fingers at the ready to post Instagram shots of that cup of cocoa (held with these mitts, of course).
These mittens seem simple at first glance, but a closer look reveals the stocking stitches and cabling that add a unique texture and bring them to the next level. This pattern will give you practice in long-tail cast on, stocking stitch in the round, working with double pointed needles, cable technique, increasing, picking up stitches, 2×2 rib stitch and casting off. If you’re looking for your first cable project, Nina Mittens are an excellent choice!
Nina Mittens are made with Wool and the Gang Feeling Good yarn. It’s a sustainable baby alpaca/merino blend. Wool and the Gang sources the baby alpaca wool from the Andean Highlands. It’s light, fluffy, soft, warm and easy to knit with.
This pattern calls for double pointed knitting needles and a sewing needle. Need to stock up? Visit our Needles and Hooks section.
