Item details

The Peppernut Set includes instructions for knitting two beautiful lace accessories: the Peppernut Shawl and Peppernut Mitts.

ABOUT THE MITTS:
Peppernut Mitts are textured lace fingerless mitts that are worked flat, then seamed—no dpns required. Knit in fingering or light fingering weight yarn, they’re named after the spicy Christmas cookie called Peppernut or Pfeffernuesse.

Sizes: Small (7 inches/18 cm long by 6.75 inches/17 cm wide before seaming, measured at garter stitch cuff) and Medium/Large (7.5 inches/19 cm long by 7.25 inches/18.5 cm wide before seaming, measured at garter stitch cuff)

Yardage: 150 yards/137 m fingering weight yarn. The sample shown in the photos was knit with Bare Naked Wools Stone Soup fingering 80% wool, 15% alpaca, 5% combination of tencel, bamboo, silk, and bison; 475yd/434m per 3.5oz/100g skein in the Pumice colorway.

Needles: US #2/2.75mm and US #3/3.25mm needles for the small size; US #3/3.25mm and US #4/3.50mm for the medium/large size

Pattern difficulty: Intermediate/confident beginner. Experience reading charts (or willingness to learn) and some experience with lace knitting are helpful.

Skills required: Casting on, knitting, purling, increases and decreases, yarn overs, binding off, reading charts. Stitch patterns are provided in charts.

Gauge: 25 sts/42 rows = 4”/10 cm in garter stitch on smaller needles after blocking (Small); 23 sts/40 rows = 4”/10 cm in garter stitch on smaller needles after blocking (Medium/Large)

ABOUT THE SHAWL:
Peppernut is a triangular lace shawl, worked top-down, in fingering or light fingering weight yarn. It pairs an attractive knit-purl stitch with an ample lace border featuring the beautiful Estonian-style bobbles called nupps.

The pattern PDF gives instructions for knitting the shawl in one size. The "wingspan" (width of top edge, after blocking) is 52 inches/132 cm.

The shawl requires 575 yards/526 m fingering weight yarn. The sample shown in the photos was knit with Bare Naked Wools Stone Soup fingering [80% wool, 15% alpaca, 5% combination of tencel, bamboo, silk, and bison; 475yd/434m per 3.5oz/100g skein] in the Pumice colorway.

You'll also need a 24- or 32-inch US4/3.50mm circular knitting needle and a 24- or 32-inch US5/3.75mm circular knitting needle (the smaller needle us used for the knit-purl section and the larger needle is used for the lace). For ease in working the nupps in the lace section, a needle with a fairly pointy tip is recommended.

Pattern difficulty: intermediate/confident beginner. Experience reading charts (or willingness to learn) and some experience with lace knitting are helpful. Tips are offered for working the nupps as well as a link to a helpful video.

Skills required include casting on, knitting, purling, increases and decreases, yarnovers, binding off, reading charts. Stitch patterns are provided in charts.

Gauge: 20 sts/36 rows = 4”/10 cm in stockinette stitch after blocking
