Garter Stitch Chunky Mittens, Striped or Color Block – A Quick Cozy Knit Gift
I know you were hoping for some great mittens to go with that cute scarf from yesterday! Well, look no further. Color coordinated to match your scarf tassels, you can choose from the striped or the color block version to suit your fancy. You can find the pattern for these on Google Viewer or Ravelry.
These mittens definitely fit in the quick and cozy bucket, taking only about three hours to make. Whip up a pair for a gift right now :). Or, make a pair for yourself. I’m doing a whole series of Quick Cozy Knit Gifts this week so click the button below, to see the full series of gifts. You’ll never have to go shopping again! (Well, except for yarn.)
These mittens are great for beginners. There are lots of great skills to pick up, increasing, decreasing, working on a separate set of stitches, gathering stitches, seaming with mattress stitch, etc. All of these skills are practiced in a cute, quick project–what could be better?
Yes, these are on the finish fifty list, too. Ooh. I’m knocking ’em out. Do you think I could get to 20 by the end of the year? I just may . . .
Here I am above at Create Explore Discover Retreat where I taught some lovely ladies how to make these beauties. Have fun and make a pair today! It’s another snow day in Baltimore, so the mittens will be put to good use! ‘Til tomorrow!
