Green Mittens

9 01 2006

\"You can\'t be serious!\"I feel like I could be Martha Stewart’s younger, trashy sister (minus prison time). From the hand turkeys to the high chair bum pillow, I’m pretty much unstoppable. Yesterday, after knitting a pair of adorable mittens for Ethan, I made meatballs- from scratch! Go, me. Anyway, the mittens are so awesome that I felt the need to share the pattern for them, since I made it up myself (yes, I am that cool).

Now all that’s left for me to do is sew Ethan some diapers.

Ethan’s Mittens
(Make 2)
CO 22 sts.
Rows 1 &2: P2 rows.
Row 3: Knit.
Row 4: Purl.
Rows 5-8: Repeat rows 3 & 4.
Row 9: K1, M1, K10 sts, M1, K10 sts, M1, K1. (25 sts)
Row 10: Purl. Repeat for all alternate rows.
Row 11: K1, M1, K11 sts, M1, K11 sts, M1, K1. (29 sts)
Row 13: K1, M1, K13 sts, M1, K13 sts, M1, K1. (33 sts)
Row 15: K2 tog, K12, K2 tog, K1, K2 tog, K12, K2 tog. (29 sts)
Row 17: K2 tog, K10, K2 tog, K1, K2 tog, K10, K2 tog. (25 sts)
Row 19: K2 tog, K8, K2 tog, K1, K2 tog, K8, K2 tog. (21 sts)
Row 21: K2 tog to last 3 sts, K3 tog. (10 sts)
Row 23: K2 tog to end of row. (5 sts)
Row 24: Purl.

Using yarn needle, BO last 4 sts. Cut long tail, turn inside out and use tail to stitch up side.
If you are awful at stitching seams invisibly, try this: Take a contrasting color yarn and stitch seams around the outside of the mitten. This will hide any ugly looking bumps made while attempting to sew the side seams.

String to attach mittens together:
Make an I-cord 3 stitches wide. Attach it to each mitten with the yarn needle.

you’re definitely not “trashy” and nothing like martha stewart. she’s boring and annoying, but you are very crafty and getting even crafty-er (is that even a word?) every time you start a new project.
