Basic Skills Necessary:

  • follow a written pattern
  • increase and decrease
  • knit in-the-round

Pattern Description:

These convertible mittens are the most practical, warm, soft, and all-around best mittens I've ever designed or worn. They provide quick access to your fingers when you need them, and the ability to quickly tuck them away when you don't.

The pattern provides two sizes, with options for two-color stripes or one-color texture striping, flip tops or traditional mittens, and optional "texter-thumbs". It is written for the two-circular method but can be easily adjusted for the magic loop, or DPN's. Length can be easily customized (great for tall knitters!), and the extra-long cuffs keep the wind out of coat sleeves. The flaps are worked as a continuation of the mitten, in one piece with short-row shaping, and they lay flat against the back of the hand when not in use. No buttons necessary!

The mittens use two 50g balls of Berroco Blackstone Tweed, or any aran weight yarn of at least 130yds. The pattern is available for individual sale, and as part of collection (including the hat and cowl) in e-book format in my Ravelry shop (Cambria Washington: Knitware & Patterns).
