Notes

Love, love this pattern. I’m knitting these on #3 needles, because I want to add a lining, which the pattern doesn’t call for, so I need them to be bigger. I’m using Magic Loop on a circular. I’m even doing the thumbs using Magic Loop.

The picot edge flares, looking like a Latvian Mitten.

The Spud and Chloe Fingering has a little silk in it, which makes the stitches a little more distinctive. For the lining, I used Brushed Suri which is amazing and makes the softest, thickest lining.

The pattern is great because it gives you a cuff chart and then gives you 3 options for the body of the mitten and choices for the thumbs. Very nice.

I knit in a little silver Signit dragonfly.
