Winter Mitts

Since Inktober is over, I’ve decided to start another project. Not a daily one, this time, but a weekly one. I’ve done so little knitting this year that I’ve decided to make a pair of mitts a week now through Christmas.

Working on something new today. #knitting

I decided to start with this yarn I had leftover from a Christmas present I made a few years ago that I had wanted to make myself mitts from since I finished said present. I didn’t use a pattern, but I based the design on the pattern I used for those original mitts.

It starts with a garter knit band around the hand, and then had an arm part that I couldn’t remember, so I just knit in ribbing, with a bit of a thumb gusset, until it fit the way I wanted.

These I’m keeping for myself, but the upcoming ones are going to be headed for my Etsy shop. Just a way to get myself making more things. Especially things that are simple and can be taken along when I go places, since my current cross stitch project is a bit of a pain to drag along.
