Notes

Using Magic Loop for this. It makes it so much easier to try the mitten on as you go as opposed to using DPNs.

First mitten finished. It was maybe a bit on the large side, so I switched to a US#1 needle for the last ten rows of the fingers, so it would be a little smaller. I used the #1 needle on the thumb. The size is just right.

I misread the yardage somehow when I chose the Berroco Alpaca Light for the lining - I ran out of the purple color and had to sub another color to finish one inner mitten. Oh well - no one will ever see it! It did make a nice lining, though.

This pattern has no inner mitten thumb, tho - I might try to improvise one next time I knit these. Also, I don’t like the look of the i-cord cast on cuff so next pair I’m going to do a different cast on. Maybe a picot edge.

I love, love this pattern and will be making it again.

Blogged about here.
