Orange Passport Mitts

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!

The rundown

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)

Needles: US2

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.

Ravelled: here.

The pretty

FullSizeRender 93 FullSizeRender 92 IMG_4171I’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 🙂

Happy knitting!

    I like this pair the best. The DK yarn really showed off the stitching.

    I really love it in the orange. Such a happy color! I did the same thing on one of my mitts – forgot to go up a needle size.

    I love all things orange! Especially if they are wool.

    Love the color and the pattern! The color just pops! Size two though? Man the thought makes my hands ache. Did you use dpns?
