Pattern: Dashing by Cheryl Niamath, size small
Yarn: Cascade 220 in Black
Needles: US 7, 4.5 mm
Made For: Fire Beard
As I stated in Ravelry, I was not convinced that these mitts would fit when I started this pattern. Fire Beard is in no way small, but according to the pattern, he needed the smaller size mitts. I eventually decided to trust the designer and cast on for the smaller size, which ended up giving Fire Beard a very snug fit that he really likes.
Despite the fact that these mitts use less than one skein of worsted wool, these took me FOREVER to knit. I just didn’t find the pattern that interesting, and I kept putting the mitts down in favor of more interesting projects. As a result, a project that should have taken me a few nights took months.
