Another christmas gift. This time some mittens. I really have been on a roll this week!
I had originally planned to use a different yarn and different pattern for this recipient. But I didnt get along with the yarn so decided on something else instead.
This is the Cozy Autumn Fingerless Glove pattern by Nikki Loud. You can find it here. I made them for a recipient with tiny hands so I went down a hooksize – the pattern required a 6 and a 5.5 so I used a 5 and a 4.5.
The Yarn is Sirdar Freya. It has a surprising yardage for a Chunky yarn, with 120 yards to 50g. You only need 1 ball for these mittens, with yarn to spare! And it is gorgeous yarn. From afar this looks purple, but when you get up close there are delicate little flecks of all the dofferent colours of the rainbow!
And now I have completed these, its 19 gifts finished, just 3 to go! We are on the home stretch!
