Ermintrude Mitts

The gorgeous Ermintrude Mitts pattern has beeen donated to p/hop by the generous and talented designer Helena Callum. You can read about Helena’s inspiration for her pattern here.

These fingerless mitts are worked cuff to fingers in the round with a patterned peasant thumb, long decorative cuff and plain hand. The pattern is a great way to use up left over DK yarn.

Using slip stitch, only one colour is worked in each round. They are simple to knit yet great for wowing your non-knitting friends with your amazing knitting skills.

They provide just enough warmth and add a cheerful splash of colour to an outfit.

What you need to get started:

  • Yarn: Approximate yardage DK weight yarn: 115 (135) m / 125 (145) yds of A, and up to 55 (55) m /60 (60) yds each of B, C and D.
  • Needles: Set of 3 mm (US 2.5) double pointed needles or circular needle


All patterns have been generously donated to the project by MSF supporters and are available for your knitting pleasure. In return, we ask that you make a donation to p/hop based on the hours of enjoyment you will get from knitting these patterns.
