Sock Yarn Mittens
I've tried to knit a pair of mittens three times. Each time, I did something to cause the mitten not to fit. I had three single, unmatched, lonely, half-seamed, pitiful mittens. Sara Jayne gave me some lovely KPPPM yarn that I want to make into mittens. I am determined not to screw them up this time. The problem? I can't seem to find a pattern for fine gauge mittens. Anyone know one? I suppose a generic formula would work, too, but I don't like those so much. Bonus points if you know of one knit in the round. :muah:

The Not just socks book. I'm making them and love them. Also did the fingerless with the sock yarn. Great book.

Here's Amazon links to the books. I saw them in my LYS and they look pretty neat!

Not Just Socks
Not Just More Socks

I found these patterns that might work.
Opera Gloves - made with sock yarn
Knitpicks -sock yarn gloves

Thanks! :cheering: :muah: I think I've seen that book before. I'll have to look for it at the library or something.

Here is a pattern you can buy online, using 3 different gauges of yarn.

This vintage pattern looks like it uses the right gauge yarn:

And here is my pattern for wrist-warmers made from sock yarn. You could keep knitting until they reach the correct length, and then decrease and close the ends in kitchener stitch if you want.
