    I don’t think I have EVER queued anything so fast! Now I’m really itching to finish up this blanket I’m working on and get going on these!

    Lovely pattern. I would love to make this for my daughter but can you tell me what yarn was used as I am not very experienced and this will be the first time I will try something like this. Thank you.

    • Mom says

      Hello Havva, I used fingering weight, (sock) yarn for the pattern. Any yarn you like in that weight will work. Enjoy picking your color!

    They are so pretty, and your instructions and chart make it very clear! I think this may be my next project. I’ve never encountered the German twisted cast on method…but then I’m not a seasoned knitter. Do you have a link to some instructions for that? Thanks.

    • Mom says

      Sure Ellen. The German Twisted Cast On is great for socks or mitts. Gives a very stretchy edge. Knitting Help.com has a great instructional video here.

    Can you tell me the finished size of these mitts ?
    I would like to make a pair for myself & was also thinking of my granddaughters who are 7 & 9 yrs old. Can you tell me how I would make smaller ones ?
    I’m a fairly new knitter & this looks like it would be fun
    Thank you so much for replying

    • Mom says

      Hi Carmel! The mitts are 7 inches around unstretched. A woman’s medium size. Unfortunately, the pattern isn’t available in a children’s size. Happy Knitting to you!
