herringbone mittens

I love these so much, it took 2 weeks to actually take them off for pictures!

 

pattern: herringbone mittens by elliphantom knits

 

yarn: Yarn Nerd 1200 MHz BFL, dyed in custom shades of Dijon Yellow and Chocolate Red.

 

needles / gauge: 6 spi and 8 rpi on US #4's

 

mods: to accommodate for my gauge difference with sport weight yarn, I worked rows 38-41 two more times, and added 4 more rows to the thumb chart (2 increase rows, 2 decrease rows)

    The yarn is fabulous, especially the Dijon, and the mittens are really great! They must be really soft and warm.

    They're really fun Adam! Well done.

    Thanks!

    They're so soft and warm, I never want to take them off. I was a bit worried I'd catch the floats, having never worn stranded mittens, but they don't get in the way at all. In fact, they even mat down a bit after wear.
