I got started on these star patterned mittens from Scandinavian Snow Sets last week. I love that even the underside of the thumbs are beautifully and simply pattered. And the stranded colorwork makes them so warm. Can’t wait until I have one for each hand!
Luccas likes them too. He, or his sister Indie, insisted on being in every photo I tried to take of this mitten in progress.
I think I’ll skip making the hat. There is no shortage of knit caps in our trunk of winter woolies. Hats were the first thing I learned to knit and I made the same one more than a few times!
I am knitting these up in a dark, mossy green and a creamy natural colored wool. The cuffs are pleasingly long and tight to keep out the wind and, as I suspected from this vintage pattern, they are significantly smaller in size than might be expected from a “Man’s Mitten.” I used a worsted weight yarn from Cascade and they fit my hands perfectly!
