Swan's Head Mitts

By: Sybil Ramkin from Knitting And So On

A swirling stitch design combined with a lovely variegated color palette create the Swan's Head Mitts. This beautiful fingerless mittens knitting pattern is knit in one piece beginning at the thumb. The shape of the swan's head is achieved by increasing the first part of a row and decreasing the second part, giving the pattern a figure-eight design. We think the swirl design shows best with a variegated yarn, but a solid color mitt would display the subtle beauty of these mitts as well.

The swirls are so stunning. Not sure if my skills are up to par, but definitely worth a try!

Is there an English version of this pattern? My German is very rusty.

Hi To Forgive Divine, If you click the pink button that says "Click here for knitting pattern," you should be able to access the English version of this pattern. -Kathryn, Editor of

I have worked out the increases for this mitt every way possible. With a calculator, on paper and counted every stitch carefully while knitting them and there is no way to get 93 stitches left after you do the 3 needle bind off. The most I can come up with is 91 and only if I include the K2tog in the count. Otherwise it is 87. Where do those additional stitches come from?

This pattern has me thinking that I should make these mitts to have on hand for the holidays. One never knows where they will be invited to; and, it is always nice to have a hostess gift ready to wrap. I know younger generations haven't been taught to give hostess gifts. Maybe my comment will inspire younger knitters to show off their talent this coming holiday season.
