Bulky Flip Top Mitts

So remember how I was making a hat / mitten set for my $15 gift for a random exchange with my girlfriends? Yeah they were a huge success:
She loves them!
Sadly I don’t have any pictures of the finished mittens up close because I finished sewing in the ends literally about 2 seconds before I had to run out the door to the party. Gotta love procrastination! I did write up the pattern to share, though:

Bulky Flip Top Mitts

They knit up very quickly on size 9 needles although all of the finishing involved in making them flip tops is kindof a pain. I think it ended up being worth it, though:
If anyone finds any errors in the pattern please let me know! I’m very new to this whole pattern writing thing! I also added them to Ravelry here.

Oh and I ended up just using a button I had for the hat – it was a shiny shell type thing that I had in a box of random buttons I got from my great-grandmother. I wish I had a better pic but oh well. I’m just happy she liked them so much!

  2. Those look very nice. It's nice that you have friends who appreciate how much work it takes even if the yarn doesn't cost that much. I had a snooty roommate when I started my first job, and I knit her a lace mohair scarf. She never shut up about how cheap my gift was! It took decades before I was able to knit another gift. I wish knit blogs were around then to have given me confidence to go on knitting gifts.

    Your friend looks very nice in the hat. I need to try flip-top mittens for DH.

    Thanks for the pattern! I made one last night and I am working on the second now. It matches the hat so well and the pattern is easy to follow. I was a little confused about what I was doing with the three strips of ribbing at the opening, but it became apparent when I just trusted and followed your instructions.

    Where did you put the button?

    To view the context of NADA's position, you have to consider how the typical car financing works payday loans no credit check his outstanding loan amount have to be less than $729,750.
