Cute and colourful, these mittens in 3 different sizes are a great way to use up those yarn ends! I designed them to have a long cuff to keep wrists nice and warm.
Size: Small (2-3), Medium (4-6), Large (7-10)
Yarn: 3, 50 gram skiens of sport weight yarn in contrasting colours. I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Sport.
Needles: 2.75mm and 3mm double pointed needles
Pattern notes: To avoid jogs when changing colours, use the jogless stripes method.
To avoid gaps at the base of the thumb when picking up stitches, pick up a couple of extra stitches and then knit them together on your first round.
Cuff band and mitten tip will be referred to as colour 1, cuff will be colour 2, and the main mitten and thumb will be colour 3.
-with colour 1, cast on 28 (36) (44) sts using a 3mm straight needle (or 2 2.75mm needles held together). Divide onto 3 2.75mm dpn. k in the round using k2, p2 ribbing for 3 rounds.
-switch to colour 2 and continue ribbing until cuff measures 2″ (3″) (4″).
-using 3mm dpn’s and yarn colour 3, work in St st, increasing 3 sts evenly across 3 needles. You will now have 31 sts (39) (47).
-k 1 (2) (3) rows.
Set up row for the thumb gusset: k across 1st needle, k across 2nd needle until 1 st remains. pm. k last st on 2nd needle. On 3rd needle, k 1 st. Make one st (yo), pm, k across the rest of 3rd needle.
Next 2 rounds: k across
Now repeat the following rounds until you have 9 (11) (13) sts between the markers.
Round 1: k across 1st needle, k across second needle until marker, slip marker and increase one st after marker (yo), k until 2nd marker, increase one stitch before marker (yo), slip marker, k across the rest of 3rd needle.
Round 2 & 3: k across (k through the back of the loops of increased sts to avoid holes)
-when you have the required amount of stitches, place thumb gusset sts on scrap yarn.
-continue knitting in St st until mitten (not including the cuff) measures 3″ (4″) (5″).
-switch to colour 1 and k for 3 (4) (5) rows.
-*k3, k2 tog* repeat around from *

I’ve been busy knitting up a storm this holiday season. I wanted to make a chunky cowl for my friend Erika, but lacked the large, circular needles that the pattern called for. So what’s a girl to do but make up her own pattern! I’m a bit embarrassed to call it a pattern as the instructions are so simple. But here goes.
The Erika Cowl
Finished size aprox. 12″ deep x 29 long
1 skien Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky in Crush (137 yards) or other bulky weight yarn
Size 12mm straight needles
5- 1″ diameter buttons
Cast on 30 sts. Knit in seed stitch for desired length. Make sure to leave enough yarn for the button hole row, and to bind off.
Buttonhole row and finishing:
K2 in seed stitch pattern, * yo, k2tog, k4 in pattern* repeat from * until 2 sts remain. k2 in pattern.
Knit two rows in seed stitch pattern. Loosely bind off in seed stitch pattern.
Weave in ends and block if desired. Sew the buttons on.
