New Mitts

I’ve finished one of my #makenine2019 projects already! To be fair… I did most of the knitting in 2018 – but it still feels good.

I’ve been meaning to knit some new mitts for ages. I wear them all the time from the first signs of Autumn through to cool Spring days and I wanted to replace my fingerless mitts with these so that I can cover my fingers on particularly cold days.

It’s quick and easy to flip the covers back when I need my fingers free so they’re perfect for when I’m in and out of shops.

I used 4ply yarn from Gamer Crafting which I had intended to knit socks with, but it was lovely for these and should be nice and hard-wearing. I might have enough left over for some small trainer socks!

I’ve been doing a lot of pattern writing recently so it was nice to knit something for myself and just make it up as I went along. But if you’re looking for a similar pattern… my Bobby Hat, Scarf & Mitts pattern features some similar mitts with a cover in Rowan Felted Tweed. The pattern is written for an average size man’s hands but could easily be knitted shorter to fit smaller hands (and narrower if necessary).

Happy Knitting!
