Matching Mitts

Matching Mitts, originally uploaded by gradschoolknitter.

Finished up these mitts to match the hat from a few days ago.

I really used up every last scrap of yarn with these (probably about 1/2 the skein of Mirasol Miski and less than a 1/4 skein of the Malabrigo).

If you like them and think they're cute and want a pair for yourself, you're in luck! I wrote up the pattern and added a few sizes (these are probably an XS, and I added S, M, L) and have it ready for download (for FREE!) on ravelry:

Things you will need to make these: worsted weight yarn scraps (approx. 100 (125, 150, 200) yards), size US 7 / 4.5mm needles (pick your fancy of 2 circs/5 dpns/magic loop), scrap yarn or a stitch holder and a tapestry needle.
And about 2 nights of tv watching time.

Originals raveled here.

I was wondering why you added one stitch to the R mitt in the garter cuff mitts. Thanks,

Hi Carol,

I added one stitch so that the thumb would be slightly off-center on each mitten. Thus the thumbs will be closer to the inside/palm. I don't know if this makes much sense, but feel free to email me ( or find me on ravelry!
