Fezzes are cool
“It’s a fez, I wear a fez now… Fezzes are cool”

Flip top mitts featuring Matt Smith’s bowtie and favourite fez. This pattern idea to me in a flash and I laughed out loud - I hope you do too! Mitts flip towards front of hand & fasten with buttons so as not to obscure bowtie ^_^
3.5mm circular (or dpns) + spare needle/waste yarn
2 stitch markers
Being comfortable working on circular needle (or dpns)
inc – knit into front and back of stitch
ssk – slip, slip, knit
k2tog – knit two sts together
Ideas for modifications
Sew on red lines for suspenders or add a tassel to the top of the fez.
Make a longer thumb by slipping the 10 12, 14 thumb sts on to waste yarn, casting on a couple of extra sts, and knitting some more thumb rows before casting off.
Change the mitts to flip the other way if desired.
23june version had a miscount in the final count for left thumb sts med & large sizes, this has been fixed and the thumb cast off reworded in the 29june version.
