This is the second pair that I’ve finished. See my post about the first pair here. I’ve already cast on for pair #3!
Pattern: Passport Mitts by Carol E. Herman
Yarn: Ella Rae Lace Merino DK in orange
Size made: Women’s small, but they came out extra little (I forgot to go up a needle size after the cuff)
Techniques used: Tillybuddy’s very stretchy cast on
Modifications: I added one extra row of K1P1 rib at the beginning as that is what works best with that particular cast on. I also picked up one extra stitch on each side of the thumb gusset, then decreased it on the first thumb round.
I’m using the same yarn for another pair. I love them! I love the color, the stitch definition, the cables, everything. The yarn is pretty soft when knitted up. They’re too little for me to even try on (I have big hands) but I have a recipient in mind for them 🙂
