Description

**This listing is for a PDF knitting pattern, NOT a knitted item.**

Sanquhar knitting originates from the town of the same name on the River Nith, in Scotland. I have always loved the look of it. The distinctive small squares (“dambrod”) containing the intricate patterns look complicated, yet are so easily achieved, just with basic two-colour stranded knitting!

When my eldest daughter told me that one of her best friends was hoping I could knit her something black and white for her birthday, I jumped at the chance to design some Sanquhar mittens for her. I paired two less-commonly seen motifs for a look which is somewhat of a departure from tradition, but still unmistakably Sanquhar.

SKILLS NEEDED

* knitting, purling
* increases, decreases
* stranded knitting
* chart reading
* working small circumferences in the round (i.e. double-pointed needles, magic loop, or two-circular methods)

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS

* hand circumference: 7.5”
* total height, including cuff: 10.75”
* thumb length: 2.5”
* thumb circumference: 2.5”
* cuff circumference: 6.5”
* hand length (i.e. length minus cuff): 7.75”
* cuff length: 3”

Pattern instructions also contain suggestions for sizing down to a woman's small.

YARN REQUIREMENTS

* main colour: approximately 135 yards
* contrast colour: approximately 105 yards

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

* three stitch markers: one distinctive from the others to mark for beginning of rounds
