Fitzroy Mitts Kit


This Kit is based on the new Beaufort socks pattern by Jane Lithgow, and includes 100g Frangipani Guernsey wool, 100% British, spun dyed and wound in Yorkshire, and available in 11 different shades.

The mitts are designed using motifs inspired by traditional fishermen’s ganseys. Also known as guernseys, these hardwearing, woollen jumpers have been worn by fishermen around the coast of Britain for more than a century.
They are knit in one piece, with underarm gussets to ensure a good fit; techniques that easily translate into sock and mitt designs. The stitch patterns that Jane has chosen – diamonds, cables and ropes – are amongst those that symbolise the everyday things in the fisherfolk’s lives.
These unisex mitts will make an interesting project for a reasonably experienced knitter who is comfortable knitting in the round.
