Miracle mitts

from Sandra Jaeger's Strickstuebchen
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Miracle mitts
Miracle mitts Miracle mitts

Pattern Description:

These mitts are so beautiful and so simple!
Therefore I call them miracle mitts and also because they are so quick to knit.

And the best of it: you can knit them from 4-ply sock yarn leftovers. You can even mix different yarn leftovers in these mitts.
If you take a closer look at both mitts you will see that one of them is completely knit with the same self-striping sock yarn and the second one has another yarn at the top (I ran out of it).
But that(tm)s nothing to worry about. They just look right that way
This is a colourwork project also suitable for beginners.
I knit the last mitten yesterday evening. So it(tm)s a quick project, too.
Makes a nice last minute gift.

They will fit hands with a circumreference of about 20 cms. For bigger/smaller hands change stitch count or use bigger/smaller needle size.

Notes for smaller and bigger sizes are included in the pattern.

They will also look great in solid colours.
If you knit them in black and white you will get zebra mitts.
If you knit the lower part in black and white and then change white to orange you will get tiger mitts.
You could also change the Main colour and the contrasting colour for the second mitten.
The possibilities are endless
I(tm)m waiting for your projects ;-)

Enjoy and happy knitting!
