Monster Mitts by Sandra Manson

Monster Mitts designed by Sandra Manson exclusively for Jamieson & Smith.

The Monster Mitts are part of a collection released to celebrate the Shetland lambing season 2013, along with the Monster Muff and Sheep Cushion patterns. It was created through altering the earlier Monster Muff pattern into a pair of snuggly gloves after noticing how cosy the loop-stitch design is. 

This kit comes with all the yarn and the pattern required to knit the Monster Mitts. It comes in shade BSS21 (red) but you can choose any shade you wish from our Shetland Aran range, making a note of this in the Delivery and Order Comments box at checkout. 

 

You will also need:

5.00mm (UK6/US8) DPNs

4 sew-on eyes, if desired

 

Sizing:

Would fit an average adult sized hand but could be altered for childen by more experienced knitters.

Kit - Antarctica Hat, Mittens & Neckwarmer

Currently unavailable

Notify on availability
£41.05

This kit features a hat, mittens and neckwarmer pattern, it is a replica of a set J&S employee and knitter Sandra Manson gifted Dr Alexander Kumar. Jamieson & Smith is proud to have had these wool garments accompany Dr Alexander Kumar during his 2012 stay at Concordia Station, an Antarctic research station. Alex spent nine months at the station, enduring temperatures as cold as –91°C!

The hat is reversible, to suit your mood and give extra cosiness. Make the Fair Isle pattern side first, then you turn the hat inside out and make a lining for the hat. You can knit the lining all in one shade, or use up all your bits of spare wool making stripes. The hat is knitted in the round and an optional bobble can be added on one or both sides. If you decide to have a bobble on both sides, don’t make it too big or your hat won’t sit nicely on your head.

The neckwarmer is knitted in the round using the Fair Isle technique. Pattern rounds use two shades of yarn, and the shade not in use should be stranded loosely at the WS of the work, taking care not to pull too tight and pucker the fabric.

The mittens are knitted in the round from cuffs to fingertips. The thumb is added using the ‘afterthought’ method.

This kit contains the Yarn and Pattern to knit the Hat, Mittens and Neck warmer, it is made in the world renowned 2ply Jumper Weight.

Sheep Heid by Kate Davies

The (very quickly) world famous Sheep Heid by Kate Davies.

Kate says:

"Sheep Heid uses all 9 natural shades of Jamieson and Smith Shetland Supreme Jumper Weight, showcasing the variety of fleece colours in this marvelous yarn – just in time for Shetland Wool Week!

Horned rams appear atop the crown . . .

. . . while the brim features thirteen rather stolid-looking moorit sheep.

From start to finish, this hat was a complete joy both to design and make. Supreme jumper weight has to be the ultimate yarn for stranded knitting – one feels that the yarn just wants to be worked in this way!"

This kit contains pattern and yarn to knit Sheep Heid.

 

You will also need:

3mm (US 2-3) x 40cm circular needle

3mm (US 2-3) x 40cm DPN or 3mm (US 2-3) x 80cm circular needle

2.75mm (US 2) x 40cm circular needle for working brim
