I finished my fingerless mittens yesterday. Super quick and fun knit! The pattern is Chasing Circles. The instructions say to use size 6 US / 4mm needles, but I used a size smaller so the mittens fit my small hands.
The yarn is Madelinetosh DK, color Lettuce Leaf. I had it leftover form another project. They only took 46g of yarn! Can’t beat that! I absolutely adore this color, but it’s been discontinued! Can you believe it? What a disappointment. I have 3 skeins of sock weight waiting for me at my mom’s house in California which I bought from a couple of people destashing. I’m so lucky to have found it! It will become a sweater at some point.
I modified the pattern a little. You can see on the outer edges of the mittens, just below the top ribbing, I decreased two stitches on the front and back of the hand. This is where my little finger begins and my hand gets smaller. I want a good fit! 🙂
Only 5 people on Ravelry, including me and the designer, have made these mittens. I for one will recommend them to others. They would make quick nice gifts too!
