View Full Version : 2 FOs: convertible mittens and a hat

01-08-2009, 09:51 PM
I finished another pair (this time for me) of convertible mittens and a hat for my mom. The hat is the Black Forest Hat, by Suzy Crancer and which is a free Ravelry download, and the mittens are a combination of three patterns: Knucks (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTknucks.html), Pele (http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/pele/pele.pdf), and Broad Street Mittens (http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall02/PATTbroadstreet.html). I really like the Knucks pattern of making the gloves fingers-down. I had to do some fiddling to get the thumb hat just right, and now I've decided the next pair will have the opening in the back rather than the front.

Lovely hat!

Ohh, neat idea on making the thumb open on the back - I'm just starting a new pair of mittens, will have to think about doing it like that so I can use my ipod!

Nice projects! The fit of the mitts looks like it would be nice and snug.

The mitts *are* warm and snug. I'm still undecided on what to do about hooking the flaps back -- the choices are: velcro (which would attract too many rogue fibers, imo), a snap (which would put a lot of pressure on the fabric), a hook & eye, or a button. The flaps are the same length as the cuffs, so a button might not work.

I really enjoy wearing them, though, even without a way to secure the flap open.
