Every year I participate in a secret snowflake swap on one of the many crafty messageboards I frequent. This year I decided to knit up a quick pair of fingerless mitts for my swap partner (amongst other gifts). I loved this pattern!
Size: one size
Started: November 15, 2008
Finished: November 16, 2008
Modifications: None at all!
Final Verdict: This was an extremely quick knit, and it was a nice change of pace to use DPNs again (although I think I’d fare better with metal ones, the wood slows me down). These mitts are nice because the top can flip back for typing or knitting or banjo picking or whatever, and then when you go outside, you flip them down and they cover your entire hand down to the fingertips.
This yarn is wonderful to work with, very warm and squishy and the colorway is nice. These pictures don’t do justice to the subtle violets and blues. It also had a striping effect that I didn’t expect. If anyone is looking for a quick knit for a holiday gift, I recommend this pattern!
