For me, knitting and crocheting evolved from a hobby to an all-consuming passion (some would say obsession). Inspiration for my designs is drawn from all over the place, including past travels -- from Turkey to Kyrgyzstan and many places in between. I dream about wool during the long Canadian winters, often waking from my sleep with visions of knittin’s dancing in my head.
Things I never leave home without: Chris, my handsome traveling companion, a knitting project, trusty e-reader, and a picture of my slightly obese cat, Ivan.
It's winter. You're cold. You need a coffee, but you forgot your reusable coffee cup sleeve at home. Won't you be looking smart when you remember you have your own built-in coffee sleeve stowed away around your wrist? With a flourish and a snap, that coffee cup sleeve is now securely anchored to your mitten to even further protect that precious beverage.
Mittens are one size, but can increase or decrease in length as you go to fit the desired hand. Mitten cuffs and coffee sleeve use a slipped stitch repeat to create a textured look that looks great from the wrong side as well. I used Paton's Kroy sock yarn in Flax for this mitten (and one ball was just barely enough for both mittens and sleeve). The sleeve is knit with 4 - 2.75mm dp needles, while the mitten is knit with 4 - 3.5mm dp needles. You will require 4 snaps for this pattern as well.
This pattern is for the klutzy, it's for the environmentally conscious, and it's for the fashionable. Knit yourself up a pair today, or knit some for that special pal of yours.
