FO Friday: More Mittens for Jellybean

After finishing the first pair of mittens for Jellybean I immediately cast on for a second pair. I’m under no illusion that as a 2 year old he’s not going to make every attempt to lose or destroy these mittens. Backups are a must!


Pattern: No Swatch No Gauge Mittens for Kids by Jean Gifford

Needles: US 5s

Yarn: Berroco Vintage in royal blue 

I used about 100 yards of worsted weight for this pair and the last pair. They are very quick to work up as well. This project also served as #dcspigskinparty2016 KAL project. I worked this in my team colors (aka my dad’s high school football team) to earn extra points in the KAL. And of course Jellybean gets more mittens!

These too need a good wash and block but are just waiting for winter to arrive! Happy Knitting!!

Mittens for Jellybean

Even in the heat of summer my child has been obsessed with mittens and light up Spider-Man snow boots. Now the mittens were just cheap dollar store mittens from last year. I think at 2 he’s ready for some mom made mittens!


I’ve completed the first one by using some leftover Berroco Vintage in a teal with the No Swatch, No Guage mittens for kids by Jean Gifford. I don’t like working on DPNs but these adorable mittens will be with it. They are slightly big now but here’s hoping that at least gets us part way through winter!

Happy Knitting!!
