Mitts that Fit!

Mitts that Fit

Ooooohhhhh... I'm loving the way these mitts fit!

Mitts that Fit

One is finished, and the other one - ALMOST done... 
Just need to knit up the thumb, and stitch down the top and bottom hems.

Mitts that Fit

I'm making them from the Alpaca Yarn which was in my Prize Pack.


Here's the Project details...

I made the small size.

Please note there is a small error in the pattern (for the small and large sizes). Errata is available on the Ravelry Pattern Page which I have linked you to.

Yarn: Cascade Yarns, Alpaca Lana D'Oro
The pattern calls for a DK weight yarn, and the Alpaca I have used claims to be a Worsted - but it feels more like a DK to me!

Needles: 3.25mm circulars
The pattern calls for 3.75mm size... I don't own any that size, and chose to go down rather than up because I work loosely.

Must go and finish the other one. I'm already wearing the first, and it's soooo toasty and warm!

Have really enjoyed the way these mitts work up - and I'm planning to make a second pair, using the burgundy alpaca from my Prize Pack. My Mother-In-Law has been complaining about how bitterly cold it is at the moment... and she LOVES that shade of red...
