I have been diligently applying myself to working through my Knitting List (an altogether different thing to a Bucket List, I assure you) in pursuit of the Big Pre-Move Challenge. Presenting; Silver Sands Mitts! One down, a little bit of one to go.
I’m making the Prismatic Scarf, AKA Silver Sands, for my lovely Mumini: it’s nearly finished, so I’m using the last ball of that yarn to make some matching mitts — what’s left after the mitts are done will be used to finish/bind off the scarf.
The mitts pattern was made up as I went along: fortunately, my Mumini and I have similarly-sized hands, so I can fit them as I go. It’s intended to match the Prismatic Scarf, so there’s a scaled-down version of the slipped stitch pattern across the back of the hands. The Prismatic Scarf pattern uses multiples of 3, so in the mitts I used multiples of 2. Here, for your consideration, are the notes I made to ensure that I wind up with two identical mitts (I haven’t made a note of the gauge, I’m sorry to say, and the mitts are at home so I can’t measure them, and I am too impatient to post this to wait until I get home: I am clearly a master blogger):
