Koigu Mittens

I whipped up some mittens (I’ve always loved mittens). I finally thought of the perfect item for me to make using this lovely Koigu yarn I bought half price at 3 Bags Full on Main St. These are the softest wool items I own! Wow. I see why it’s important to buy expensive, higher end wool. These are not scratchy wool at all and seem quite durable. I did the very tips of the fingers (including tips of thumb) in Single Crochet, then increased to Half Double Crochet for speediness. I am definitely a Koigu Kerstye Crepe Merino fan now!!! And it’s made in Canada (I think).

    They are very beautiful. I am partial to green.

    Where did you find the pattern? Are they sewn up, or crocheted in the round?

    Hello Deldobuss. Thank you for the compliment. They are crocheted in the round. For this particular weight of yarn (sport weight) I did the regular increase 6 at every round, then at 36 sc in the round, I kept just single crochet around. All the way down until the thumb. I made up the pattern.
