FO Friday – Mike’s New Mitts

Mike’s been having heating issues at work which have resulted in some pretty chilly hands. I had previously made him short fingerless mitts using this pattern (pictured below).

But alas, when he needed to warm his hands up, they were nowhere to be found! So I grabbed a very small hank of worsted yarn we bought on Kauai on our first Hawaii trip (150 yards max, I of course already lost the tag) and started knitting.

  • PatternPeekaboo Mitts, Project Page
  • YarnHanalei Strings
  • Size: one size
  • Needle size: US6 for ribbing, US7 for stockinette
  • Modifications:
    • I went down a needle size for the ribbing. It makes it look a little weird when it’s not being worn, but snugger while worn.
    • Lengthened them a bit.

He should have toasty warm hands at work now! 🙂
