Pink Argyle has a fun little pattern posted for mini mittens. I decided to make a couple pairs of mittens to give away!
Because I dislike the fiddliness of small DPNs, I knit these mittens on 2 circular needles. I also made the following modifications:
- Using the cable cast on, CO 18 sts on one circular needle, and placed 8 sts onto the other circular needle (needle A).
- Knit 3 rounds of 1x1 twisted rib
- After the thumb was knit, pick up 2 sts using needle A, and then knit the remaining 6 sts. Now, both circular needles have 8 sts each.
- Knit all stitches after Decrease Round, and then repeat Decrease Round before cutting yarn tail.
Of course, Vespa had to model these for me. Look at how the mini mittens are eclipsed by the enormity that is Vespa's Schnoz.
And, just because...
