Here are my Kindness Mitts in all their unblocked glory!
Pattern: Fingerless Mitts by Cheryl Goyer
Yarn: Hedgehog Fibers Merino DK in Ink
Needles: US 5s
Mods: I didn’t work the full thumb as prescribed in the pattern. I knit until it looked good enough and cast off.
As predicted the fit is pretty baggy. But they don’t fall off so I’m calling it a win. I used 125 yards or roughly 65 grams of yarn for these two mitts. I knit the first one to pattern measurements and then I knit the second one by counting the rows in the first one. I felt pretty smart doing that. They ended up almost identical!
What I’m really pleased about is that they will smashing with my Kindness KAL 2019 shawl as matching accessories. And I’m currently weighing my leftovers of this last skein of Ink and my Salty Tales to see if I have enough to eeek out a matching hat! Stay tuned….
