Five for Fighting Gloves

Finished Project: Wee Fighting Mitts

Pattern: Sock Yarn Newborn Mittens

Begin Date: 03/14/2010

End Date: 03/14/2010

Yarn: Deborah Norville Serenity Sock - Aquamarine

Needles: US 1


Size: Newborn

Modifications: None


These worked up super fast. I was a bit confused when the designed said it was a garter stitch cuff, when in fact the instructions are for a ribbed cuff, but whatever, they are super cute.

The color choice could easily work for a boy or a girl and I did not have a gender in mind when I knit them. I just grabbed some random sock yarn and got started.

I worked these up duirng a Penguin's hockey game..and a little Avalanche too, hence the name.

I used a US 1 (2.25mm) and I think the pattern called for a 2.5mm, but really I don't know that a quarter millimeter would make a huge difference.

I don't know that a ribbon or tie is needed as they didn't fall off the model. Perhaps though if little mouths and wiggly movements were involved, Mom might want to tie these on. I need to make either longer chains for find some coordinating ribbon (my preference).

Cute knit and are great along with an umbilical hat for a quick gift.
