Hawkeye mittens finished

November 18, 2007

My brother and his family are going to be visiting my parents in Iowa for Thanksgiving this year.  They live in Atlanta, so you know my 3 year old nephew doesn’t have proper mittens … which means that I, as his only knitting relative, am duty-bound to wrap the boy’s hands in wool.  I used the basic mitten pattern from Ann Budd’s The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns, and yarn from the stash, and came up with:

Hawkeye mittens

To a 3 year old, these will most likely be “bee mittens”. To everyone else he meets while visiting my parents they will proclaim his loyalty to the University of Iowa.  Gotta start ’em young.


I finished these a couple of weeks ago for a swap….

Y’all have probably already seen them already, but just in case you haven’t:

Made out of Rowan 4 ply, inspired by a Dale of Norway kids’ sweater pattern.  Colors are not quite accurate in the pictures; the colors are more golden or autumn-y in real life.

I hope you like them!
