Victor Steeked Mitts Kit

Add to Wishlist

Ready to start steeking? these color work mitts have been fully kitted up to do just that! Included in this kit is enough Studio Donegal Darnie yarn (all 4 colors) to make the largest size, 1 felting needle, small black foam cube, and pattern.

I love colorwork and mitts, so it seemed like the perfect time to combine them in these fun to knit and steek mitts. With a knit-in steeking section to make it easy to cut and finish, you can easily adjust how deep your “thumb space” is. This small project is a great way to dip your toes into the colorwork pond and also try out steeking without risking a giant project. For even more fun, needle felt the edges of your thumb opening after you steek. When using a different yarn, make sure it is appropriately wooly so you can felt the edges of your steeked cut.

I chose a jaunty selection of colors and a little pop of yellow for my mitts. What colors will you choose?

This pattern is meant for an intermediate to advanced knitter and all those in-between.
