Pride and Prejudice Mittens by Christelle Nihoul
Needles & yarn
US 1½ - 2.5 mm
Nerd Girl Yarns Swagger
9 yards in stash
0.34 skeins = 148.9 yards (136.2 meters), 34 grams

I love these mitts so much! When I saw the pattern go through the testing phase I knew I had to make a pair with my custom-dyed mint green yarn.

I had no problems with the pattern and I didn’t need to make any modifications. If I remember correctly I was using an Addi US 2 / 2.5 mm, but I put in the needle size by mm, not US size.

I know lots of people who don’t block their mitts, but I found in this case that it really helped even out the twisted-stitch panels and flatten the transition to stockinette.

The round buttons are from My Sister Knits in Fort Collins, CO.
