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).
