Reading Mitts

I still have a FO or two from ’09 to show you but instead today I’m showing off my first FO of 10. They are the pair of Susie’s Reading Mitts that were supposed to be a Christmas present, but I definitely blew the deadline. It’s okay, though, because I haven’t seen the recipient yet so she will be none the wiser. Heh.

If you are looking for a very simple and very quick fingerless mitt pattern this is THE one. The lace cuff is pretty and easy to do and the picot edge makes a beautiful feminine accent to the design.

The yarn is Karabella Boise and it’s quite yummy. The cashmere gives the mitts a nice fuzz and they are so soft! I knit the small size and they are definitely narrow but they fit Hannah perfectly (I had to practically pry them off and I may have even promised to make her a pair) so I know they will fit the recipient who also has small hands.

I might even have to make a pair of these for myself.

  1. Those look really lovely. As you say simple, but very elegant looking. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Karabella. I love anything Karabella! And that yummy chocolate yarn? Color and yarn choice paired with the right pattern. I often struggle over that. What a special gift.

  3. Those look lovely, and cozy. Although you’d need to layer another pair or TWO of mittens on top with our weather today. Brrrr!

  4. They are beautiful and I love the color!

    That’s funny that you “may have even promised” to knit Hannah a pair. Emma is on quite a mitt kick these, too. Mine are missing whenever I turn around. 🙂

  5. I just finished a pair of them, they are so simple to make , I love mine. I even made a cowl to match.

  6. I’m not big on feminine touches, but I love those mitts. So much that I favorite-d them in Ravelry and downloaded the pattern. Thanks!

  7. Your mitts look great … and a little familiar. I do think they are very different in a solid color. I’m sure the recipient will love them.

  8. Wonderful! It seems like it was the Christmas of the mitts for you! Great choices! (and I love the snow in the photos!)

  9. How luxurious, the color is also rich and will look great with quite a few colors. Who would not love to wear cashmere?

  10. I saw the Boise, and my heart stopped. What a GREAT idea. Those are soft, warm, squooshy.

  11. Love the mitts! I made a pair of beaded mitts for my close friend in Florida and as cold as it has been she has actually been able to wear them! It will be fun to try this pattern – is it posted somewhere?

  12. I love that color, love those mitts! I already had the pattern saved, but now that I’ve seen yours, I’m even more anxious to try it. Thanks for the encouraging words “very simple and very quick.” I’ve never tried fingerless mitts–or ANY mittens–but these are so pretty!
