Winter Mittens for J

23 Nov

We’ve been having some relatively mild weather here lately, so I keep forgetting that winter is just around the corner.  I finally got around to knitting J. some new mittens.  I used less than half a ball of Rowan Handknit Cotton and leftover Jaeger Matchmaker for the mitten band and crocheted cord.

I modified the Bold Banded Mittens pattern by Zoë Mellor.  To minimize having to seam up the mittens, I knit them using the Magic Loop method.

Now, the tricky part will be getting J to actually wear them and keep them on.

I have been knitting more than these mittens, but I will show you after the holidays once the knitted gifts have been given.
