If you are serious about being warm, these are the mittens for you! These yummy mittens are cushiony, being made of two layers! They are knitted circularly. First you knit the inner mitten in the round, then pick up from the provisional cast-on to work the ribbing in the other direction, finally finishing off with the outer mitten. There is also optional short-row shaping to mold the mittens to the natural curve of the hand.
The pattern includes Technique and Theory Boxes along the way and a Glossary and Schematic. The 2 smaller sizes require 2 skeins while the 4 largest sizes require 3 skeins. The Green Mountain Spinnery's Weekend Wool is featured in this kit.
There are six sizes in the pattern: Size/ palm circumference: XXS: Small Child /6" XS: Medium Child /6.75" S: Large Child / Small Woman /7.25" M: Medium Woman /8" L: Large Woman/SmallMan/ 8.75" XL: Medium Man/ Large Man/ 9.5"
The kit arrived in record time and the directions are clear. The author also wrote about a knitting problem I have had in the past (K1P1 rib) and gave a suggestion on how to make the ribbing seem nicer. Thank you.
