Original entry:

Well it took a bit of meandering but I finally got results I’m happy with. I had recently put up a knitted pattern of Mrs. Fitz’ mitts, and wanted to then work up a crocheted version. Initially I set out to make them as similar as possible (knit sts and crochet sts don’t really look the same), but these sort of developed, and I like them, so I just went with the flow. They still look like something you could wear while toddling about the castle, but a bit dressier.

Or perhaps Mrs. Fitz would wear them on a night out.

Specifics RE yardage: Malabrigo Mecha merino wool (bulky) 1 skein (130 yards/100 grams) is just enough for 1 pair if doing in 1 color at this size. If you need to make pattern adjustments for a larger size, you would need 2 skeins/extra yardage. I got 2 skeins (260 yards) so I could combine 2 colors, and I could make 2 pairs.

The arm is worked first, then you turn your work ΒΌ turn clockwise to work the hand. The thumb is created by skipping stitches and making a chain as a bridge over those stitches. These mitts are worked flat and seamed when finishing.

I hope you like them!
