More scrap busting, leftovers from my step it up hat. A nice speedy knit to break up the boredom of the big project I have on the go.
Pattern: Stay-Put baby mitts by Jillian Neary
Yarn: Lion brand woolease
Needles: 4.5mm dpns
This is the simplest of patterns but very effective, a ribbed tube, a stockinette tube and decreases to close the end. I skipped the I-cord ties and jumped straight to the k2 k2tog round on the decreases.
You may notice that there are three mittens. It is not that I know some oddly shaped small people. It is just that I had that much yarn left and I figured that mittens get lost so three gives a spare. I left out the i-cord string as for the last lot of mittens I made group wisdom said no strings for little people
There is a tiny ball of yarn left, this stuff just keeps on going! So far out of one 85g ball I have made an adult hat, a stuffed elephant and three toddler sized mittens. The scrap left is not really enough to make anything from. I will maybe have to make something stripy as I am trying to avoid leftovers.
