HI! I just wanted to say that I know quite a few patterns that are easy. If you need a pattern for something, I am pretty sure I might be able to help. Just post a reply, and within a few minutes I will have posted a link or two. Happy knitting! :grphug:

An easy pattern for mittens with alpaca yarn? I've never made mittens, and I've seen patterns for using 3 needles, and patterns for using 2. What should I try, given this is my 1st attempt at making mittens. (I'm not a beginner but have no experience using 3 needles. Also, would a circular needle help? What's the diff. between using a circular needle and using 3 double pointed needles?)

With a circular needle you'll have to use the magic loop method, video found here - http://knittinghelp.com/videos/advanced-techniques because you can't get a needle short enough for mittens.

Here are some good sites I found. These should help. If it doesn't help, post a reply and I will do some more looking. Happy Knitting! Oh, and you can use whatever yarn you want in these patterns.
