Anemoi Mittens - FAQ and Errata
Frequently Asked Questions About This Pattern
What yarn did you use?
For my pair, I used Louet Gems
Opal Pearl, of course in the color Tobacco, and Koigu KPM in very light, almost cream beige. Any fingering-weight yarns should work just fine, as long as you can reach the given gauge.
How about a solid pattern yarn and a variegated/self striping/ombre-style yarn for the background?
That would look fantastic! Just one thing to keep in mind: make sure your contrast color is either darker or much lighter in value than all the shades in your multicolored yarn to ensure the pattern's "readability".
What needles are required?
A set of 2.00mm (US 0) DPNs for the cuff (all sizes) and a set of 2.25mm (US 1) DPNs for size small; 2.5mm (US 1.5) DPNs for size medium; and 2.75mm (US 2) DPNs for size large. Sets of 5 DPNs are recommended.
- In the cuff directions, both Round 1 and Round 2 of the corrugated rib should read "...end k1MC, p1MC" instead of "end k1MC".
- In right and left mitten charts, the chart key should show a blank square as the main color and the dotted square as the contrast.
