This picture didn’t turn out very well but I will use it for now and replace it later. These mittens are a very dark navy blue and I knitted them very tightly in GGH Aspen yarn. It is 50% Merino wool and 50% Acrylic, 57 meters in 50 grams. I used just over two balls of this yarn. They are extremely heavy and bulky, which is what he wanted. My only complaint with this yarn was that it turned my fingers blue — honest!! My wooden needles too!! I should probably set the color or his hands will looks like a Smurf’s if they get wet. He seems very happy with them and when Daddy’s happy, everybody’s happy.
This free pattern was very easy to follow even for a novice knitter like me. That’s probably why it’s called Easy Mittens Pattern — by Claudia Krisniski.
