We've created a brand new Shinny Mitt yarn option to complement and rival our original Hat Trick hockey inspired Shinny Mitt pattern by Ann Budd, as part of our 2022 RCY Pattern "Do-Over" project. 

Addendum - In our Do-Over, we use our Adam & Eve hand dyed cashmere blend yarn from Hand Maiden for the outer mitt and Rowan Kidsilk Haze for the liner. We followed the original pattern instructions as written, except to change the needle sizes to get gauge with the yarn choices.

  • We used a 3.0 mm (US 2.5) needle with our single strand of Adam & Eve for the outer mitt. 
  • We got gauge for the inner mitt on a 2.75 mm (US 2) needle with a single strand of Rowan Kid Silk Haze.

Your kit includes: yarn to make one pair of adult sized Shinny mitts + pattern

  • 1 skein Adam & Eve (Outer mitt)
  • 1 ball of Rowan Kid Silk Haze (For inside liner)
  • Shinny Mitt Pattern - print copy

You'll need:

  • 3.00 mm / US 2.5 or size to get gauge for outer mitt (DPN's, 2 circulars or one long circular for magic loop)
  • 2.75 mm / US 2 or size to get gauge for inner mitt (DPN's, 2 circulars or one long circular for magic loop)
  • Stitch Marker
  • Small Stitch Holder
  • Tapestry needle

About Shinny Mitts: Ann Budd has created this pattern to withstand even the coldest Canadian winters! With a liner that tucks inside the outer mitten, two layers keeps the wind out and allows you more time in the game! The knitting couldn't be simpler - both the mitten and lining are worked in good old stockinette stitch. 

About Adam & Eve: made up of a luxurious blend, 81% merino, 9% cashmere and 10% nylon, Adam & Eve is 100% pure temptation. Its plump gauge enabled us to use it single stranded for the outer mitten, in place of the two strands of fingering weight yarn held together in the original pattern. We encourage you to knit more than one pair. The kit will make a pair of the new lighter, luxe version to wear "to the game", and you can use stash or check out our RCY Hat Trick hockey inspired yarn  to make the original warm and double stranded lined mitt, to wear outside "in the game".
