More Mini Mittens

There will be mini mittens on the Christmas tree after all!

Mini Mittens from Handspun


It didn't feel right to give up so quickly, so when Susan shared another pattern, I had to try it. Mini Mittens designed by Leslie Ann Bestor suits me so much better! They are knitted flat and then seamed which is easier to manage and less fiddly than knitting in the round on double pointed needles.

If you are looking for a quick and easy pattern, this is the one I recommend. The first mitten took only 30 minutes to finish and that included the sewing (whip stitch). The more I knitted, the faster I got and before I knew it, three pairs were finished. It was addicting.

    they certainly are cute...but i've got sooo many projects on needles right now, I just can't justify one more. Maybe if I start knitting them in january, I'll have presents for Christmas 08?

    Heh heh. I signed up for an ornament swap this year and I never have a tree. I'm not sure what I was thinking. I'm pinning them to my cubicle walls instead.

  14. Cute mittens! I've been knitting mini mittens with this pattern: http://www.fortheloveofyarn.com/Issues/06Fall/patterns/fall06_minimittens.shtml

    It uses size 4 dpns--the same size I use for many of the preemie hats I knit.
