She Knits: Sprout’s Mittens

Sprout plays outside almost every day. The weather will soon turn cold, and she will need these so she can continue to spend time outdoors.

Progression Info
Started – October 13
Completed – October 15
Duration – 2 days = 0.3 weeks

I would say these took me about 4 hours to knit. A rewarding little project that made for a nice break in Christmas stocking knitting.

Pattern Info
Basic Mitten Pattern by Ann Budd
The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns
Size – 2-4 years

This pattern book was a birthday gift from my mom. And I love it! It gives patterns for various basic items (hat, mittens, sweater, etc.) by gauge. Amazing. These mittens were my first project from the book, and I enjoyed working with this book. It was tricky in some places, learning to interpret the way the instructions are given.

The only mistake I made was not making the thumb long enough. But they do fit well enough, at least for this winter. ☺️

Yarn Info
Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Sport
100%wool
Colorway – Dove Heather
0.52 skeins = 71.1 yds used

Do you recognize this yarn? It was leftover from my Decimal Cardigan and Autumn Mittens. Sprout and I will match in our woolen warmth this winter.
