you have to make sure your rings don’t get caught on these ones! i think a smaller needle size is needed here, although i must say that i quite like them. i wanted to make mittens, but trusted my intuition and cut them short. thank goodness – there is zero of this yarn left – indeed, the thumbs are red :)

i purposefully made both of these mitts long for warmth. i like this style because if you need more freedom, you just fold the tops back.

  1. i LOVE the mitts. i love the way you do the little heart patterns. is that duplicate stitching? or intarsia? i don’t know anything about colour-knitting at the moment, stripes are as much as i can handle, but i’d love to learn… does your book go into that?
