Fun, Fabulous and Warm MITTENS!!

knitted mittens and hatsLook at these wonderful, fun warmth mittens. 8 pairs of various sizes. Fabulous Linda. Thanks bunches. Two great kids hats, and a really fun bright colored scarf too.

Linda, I love how these mittens were knit length ways. Does this mean you didn't need DP's? Were they knit straight on regular needles? Please post the pattern, or leave a link if you can.

And look at the darling hat with ear flaps! Soooooooooooo cute. Hey Linda, could ya send us some sun shine from Florida too? lol

  1. Hi Sandy,

    The mittens are indeed a two needle mitten. Mariella's Sideways Mitten pattern. Here's the link...
    or you can just google it. I make them on size six or size eight needles, depending on if the yarn is sport weight, or worsted, and I use the child size pattern that starts with 28 stitches. The adult ones seem to come out *huge* for me! But would probably be best for guys hands! And the garter stitch makes them good and thick for extra warmth! I *love* these mittens. And they are well tested by my five kiddo's and they all give them a big thumbs up!!! That's my best test for likeability! :-)

  2. Thank you so much for the link to the mitten pattern. I'll have to give it a go and see how I make out with it.

    Sandy, I sent the box of hats out to you today. It went 2 day so I think that means you'll have them by Wednesday.

  3. I'm making all my scarves geared toward colors for men. Is there a certain size that works better? Width - length? Crochet Hugs! Beth

  4. Bunny, I'm anxious to try Linda's knit with 2 needle pattern too.

    Beth, thanks bunches for working towards those men under the bridge. I make most of mine about 6 ft long, and and about 7-8 inches wide; but there is not set size. Just what you think would work well for a man.

    Thanks Ladies.

  5. I think in one post 60" was mentioned for length, but of course for a scarf there is really no "bad" length. Some prefer them short so they don't get caught in things and are just tucked into a jacket. Others like to wrap around once or twice. I'm working presently on a Doctor Who scarf and it is supposed to be NINE feet long. That will be the longest I've ever made.

  6. Yes, I agree 60 is a good average length, Sandie. But, like you said people like different things, and people are different sizes. WOW, really 9 feet....one could wrap multiple times in it.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
