FO Friday: WOOT! Mittens are done!

 Hurray! I just past the 5,500 all time views wow!

To celebrate I am offering a free download of my favourite sock pattern till Monday! Enjoy!  Sorry you missed Sue’s EZ Toe-up socks… Watch for the next celebration give away!

Hello all! Happy finished object friday!  I love doing weird and wonderful things with traditional shapes. I look on it as improvement through sideways thinking.  The “Inside, Outside, Upside Down Mittens” came about because my mil gifted me with a lovely new black winter coat.  I had a servicable blue coat for everyday wear that I didn’t just want to toss. I was doing a lot of socks at the time and found two balls that were likely candidates. I made up the pattern in 2008 as a christmas gift for my knitting friends, so I resurrected it for my mittens. If you are tempted to try these see this grafting method, I just love it!  For more info on yarn needles and where to get the pattern look here.

Inside Outside Upside Down Mittens (reversible Mittens)

What I like about this pattern:

  1. sock yarn is durable, perfect for mittens
  2. sock yarn is washable, perfect for mittens
  3. sock yarn in this case is woolen, perfect for mittens
  4. 2 layers of sockyarn makes a very nice insulated mitten
  5. these mittens are reversible
  6. This pattern can be made 3 different ways, traditional wrist up, top down or reversible (2 layered, knit from top, to cuff, to top)
  7. they take about    oz of sockyarn
  8. knit up as fast as a sock
  9. no heel!
  10. keep your hands warm!

    I love these. It’s so clever, one set of mittens, many many days of wearing them and no one will know.
