This pattern is currently unavailable. I’m doing a bit of house cleaning, and as part of that process, some of my older patterns are currently unavailable.

You can read a bit more about the project here if you’d like. And you can always check out my ravelry store for a list of available patterns.

Smidgen noun
- a small amount, a little bit

Painters had descended upon my house to scrape off the peeling paint and replace it with something much less embarrassing. This was necessary, but oh so noisy. I couldn’t focus on anything for more than five minutes.

This set of mitts are the result of that unrest!

Each one is made in a different way, each one uses only a tiny bit of yarn (the ones shown are 100 yards or less for a pair), each one is fairly mindless knitting, and each one takes only a few hours to complete. I love them all!

The red ones are the laciest and most classic of the three. They look adorable peeking out from under the edge of your sleeve.

The yellow ones are the most unusual and the funkiest of the set. They are made in a unique way and are great fun to put together. You’ll love finding just the right button to finish them off.

The blue ones are the simplest (and perhaps the most fun) of the three. They are ruffly and exuberant and so so cute. They’re sure to get lots of compliments.

The red and blue cuffs are each written in four sizes and three gauges to fit nearly anyone, and the yellow one is completely adjustable (you make it bigger by making the strip longer, so it can fit anyone).

PLEASE NOTE: This download includes all three patterns, Sliver (the yellow one), Smidgen (the red one), and Snippet (the blue one).

These are perfect for you if:

  • You’ve got piles of leftover sock yarn looking for the perfect project
  • You want to try a bunch of fun cuff shapes
  • You think three patterns are more fun than one

They’re not for you if:

  • You don’t like charts (the pattern uses charts)
  • You hate swatching (you need to swatch to check your needle size)
