I’m sitting at work– babysitting the office– and I’m really bored so I wrote up the pattern for my basic mittens- these ones are made with the KnitPicks Andean Treasure alpaca.
I thought I’d share the pattern with all of you!
I decided to write out the pattern for my mittens because they’re so easy and I felt selfish for keeping them all to myself. This pattern can be used for BOTH mittens since the thumb gusset goes to the side of the mitten, rather than in the hand piece. These mittens also feature the squared-off top that I use to finish.
Hardware:Size 5 DPNs and/or Circular needle(s)
Worsted weight or two strands of DK/Sport/Fingering weight yarn

EDIT: 10.6.12: Sorry all but as of today I’ve decided to sell the pattern. You can purchase it for $3.99 at Ravelry. Thanks!
