A pair of mittens for my good friend, Tracy. She and her Boston Terriers (Freckles and Leila) go for walks nearly every day at a great park just outside of town. She'll need these to keep her hands toasty warm, as the weather is now turning cold. I join the trio on Fridays when school is in session. It's great fun!
HERE: Not a free pattern, sorry!). The original pattern calls for a sort-of rolled cuff. In this pair, I completed 15 rounds of knit2, purl2 ribbing and then I completed 15 rounds of stockinette before starting the gusset increases. This mittens are roomy and long. I like long cuffs on mittens so you can tuck them into the sleeves of your jacket without any gaps for cold air to sneak in. When I make this pattern again, I might consider using smaller needles for the cuff portion.
This colorful yarn comes from my Mom's stash... Thanks, Mom! It was a partial skein and to me it appears to be Bernat Sox in a colorway called "Crazy Hot" (a nylon/acrylic blend). I do love Bernat yarns!
