Julekveld Kit for the 2017 Christmas Knit-a-long


Curled up in the warm looking out at twinkling night skies.  The details are in the stitches and the stitches are in this year’s Christmas knit-a-long – a new and enchanting mitten design by Eli ‘Skeindeer’ Leistad, inspired by the magic of Christmas Eve. This magic and mystery knit-a-long will be released in 5 parts in the run up to Christmas.

The pattern uses stranded colourwork, with no more than 2 colours at a time, working in the round. It also features a Latvian braid – fun to do and easy to learn. It is fully charted in a clearly written pattern.

The Julekveld Kit includes:

  • a code to download all the pattern clues
  • 3 and a half balls of Jamiesons 2 ply Jumper Weight
  • a custom made Julekveld stitch marker by Yarnistry and a few extra festive niceys to keep things jolly.

Needles are not included in the kit. Your needle size will depend on the size of mittens that you want to make – see Description below..

Kits come in two colourways:

Snow: white, navy, dark red

Glow: oatmeal, bright red, green

You need one set of needles to reach the the gauge size (see sizes below), and one set which are 0.5mm below the gauge size.

For the Medium Women’s size, we recommend swatching with 3mm needles to achieve a 32st/10cm gauge.
Your needles should be suitable for small circumference knitting – either DPNs, Asymmetric Circulars, 80cm circulars for magic loop or Addi Crasy Trios.

Different mitten sizes are made by adjusting your stitch gauge with different sized needles.

The following gauges create the following sizes

34 sts per 10cm/4” for pre-teen, 9cm width.
33 sts per 10cm/4” for teen/women’s small, 9.5cm width.
32 sts per 10cm/4” for women’s medium, 10cm width.
31 sts per 10cm/4” for women’s large/men’s small, 10.5cm width.
29 sts per 10cm/4” for men’s medium, 11cm width.
28 sts per 10cm/4” for men’s large, 12cm width.

For reference, Eli used 3mm to get the right gauge for a medium women’s size.
