Some easy mittens

March 9, 2009

I made some mittens a few weeks ago for my friend Kim in North Carolina who was headed up to Canada.  I didn’t get them to her in time to go to Canada but there was snow when she came back and she was happy.

Even though the pictures are pretty good, I don’t think they show just how pretty these things are in person.  I will probably make these again sometime; it’s a really different way to make mittens.

Pattern: Mittenz

Yarn:  Plymouth Yarn Expression, 2 skeins red/orange, 1 skein grey/black (counts as a “super bulky” yarn)

Needle: size 10 US (6.0 mm)

This is a quick knit and fun to do, since the construction is sideways.
