You too can create your own Insieme Mitts by GK knits. For my version I knitted the smallest size and used the gorgeous Rosabella Threads Prima 5 in the colour Seaglass. I used 46 grams for two mitts in the size M (just under 2 skeins).
INSIEME is the Italian word for ‘together’ - that’s what’s becoming more important than ever nowadays. The wrist warmers were initially just knitted to fulfil a wish my goddaughter addressed. I liked the fit and look, so it became a pattern and facing the actual worldwide crisis, hopefully also a bit of a helping hand for people dear to me…
The wrist warmers are worked in rounds, featuring a twisted rib pattern shaped by increases for a perfect thumb fit and a small Japanese stitch pattern as decorative edging.
The instructions are given for 2 different yarns (DK/Sport weight) and for two different sizes M (L), but you can easily adjust the pattern for almost every yarn you intend to use. Just make sure, to swatch and accordingly adjust the number of stitches to fit your wrist circumference.
