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

Laura Nelkin lives in upstate New York, where the sunny season is short, leaving plenty of time to be indoors knitting. Though she has a degree in apparel design, she took to knitting years ago and hasn't looked back since. Laura is currently enamored with lace, and with incorporating beads into knitted jewelry, so most of her designs lean in this direction. She travels often to teach these techniques and more at workshops around the country. Her designs have been featured in a number of online publications, including Interweave, Knitty.com, Schaefer Yarn Co. and Creative Knitting. Her new book, Knockout Knits, will be released in September 2014.View all patterns by designer (27) »
