Pattern: 75 Yard Malabrigo Fingerless Mitts, by Jeanne Stevenson
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Worsted in Velvet Grapes (approx. 63 yards used)
Needles: US 7, 4.5 mm
Notes: The yarn used in this project was left over from the Pauline Bonnet. I was worried through most of the knitting, that I would not have enough yarn, but I ended with an excess. I could easily have embellished the mitts as I had the Pauline Bonnet with the left overs.
Additionally, the mitts turned out rather big for my hands (women’s size small/medium in gloves). Firebeard could, if he so desired, wear these mitts himself. Had the mitts been knit to fit me, as intended, even more yarn would have been left over.
If I make these mitts again, I will reduce the size significantly. I might also increase the length of the cuff, as it is rather short.
I would consider knitting these again, if I had about 70 yards of Malabrigo leftover after a project, as this pattern gives a very practical use of a small amount of yarn. However, I will rewrite the pattern to fit my hand first.
