These mittens are the BOMB! In the winter of 2006 my then 6-year-old described to me EXACTLY what she needed in a mitten. It turns out that to do things right in the great outdoors she needed to have her fingers easily accessible, but she also needed to be able to cover them up whenever she got too cold. I was happy to oblige, and the flip-top mitten was born. These mittens are knit at a very dense gauge so that water and snow can't get through to your digits. Be careful! Everyone will be clamoring for a pair. The patterns is written for both fingering (sock) and worsted weight yarn, and is sized for the whole family (9 sizes).
Fingering Weight- 28 sts/40 rnds = 4" in st st

I live in upstate New York, where the sunny season is short, leaving plenty of time to be indoors knitting. Despite holding a degree in apparel design from Cornell University, I took to knitting years ago and I havent looked back.
Currently, Im enamored with lace and incorporating beads into knitted jewelry, so most of my designs lean in this direction. I travel often to teach these techniques and more at workshops around the country and online with Craftsy.
I have a line of knitting kits, self-publish patterns and run mystery knit-alongs multiple times a year. You can find some of these designs in my book, Knockout Knits.
When Im not designing or knitting, Im gardening, whipping up yummy feasts with my family and taking time to play! Recently, Ive developed a healthy addiction to yoga and Im determined to master a tripod headstand and handstand!
