i have to say i'm pretty pleased that i knit 2 pairs of mitts! (and that's like 4 things, when you really think about it). yes i did say that right... two pairs!
you remember these, right?
red is best" by one of my besties, jane richmond. i've honestly been wearing them every day since i've bound off for these babies. they are so warm, and well perfect! haha. i really love them!
well when my hubby saw them, he liked them... a lot... so of course, i had to knit him a pair as well! and of course, jane has written a pattern perfect for men too!
these are "quick mittens for men" and let me tell you, they are uber quick! they literally take no time at all. my hubs has kind of smaller hands. (it's cute!) so i downsized the needle to a 5.0mm... but i had to compensate for that by knitting more rounds in the flip top part of the mitten... it worked out perfectly...as you can see ;)
he loves them! and i do too! they fit him just like a ... mitten.. haha. honestly though! he's done the whole "shake" test to make sure it doesn't fly off his hand in case he were to spontaneously jazz hands it up somewhere... (i guess you never know).... and they stayed on. and now we can go out in style! xo
i knit these in the patons shetland chunky. and it's gotta be one of the squishiest yarns i've worked with! love it. and there are still lots of leftovers. these really are the perfect mitts. and if you're looking for a last minute gift for any day... well look no further! honestly, keep these babies in mind.
oh and just because he's the cutest little thing ever...
