Notes

I’m knitting these in a magic loop because, after starting with dpns, I realized it was way easier to knit the charts if the stitches were evenly split.

I’m holding the yarn in two hands, with the grey in my left hand and the purple in my right hand.

I used almost the entire 50g of the purple (main colour) and only about half of the 50g skein of the grey.

I also recharted the tops of the mittens to add an extra half-inch of length. All in all, I’m very pleased with how they worked out.

Pattern-wise, the chart and the written instructions do not entirely match up, which is a bit frustrating, but not disastrous.
