I gifted the Ms Ida Chain Link mittens to my sister and she sent me a picture of them. For some reason I forget to take the pictures before I gift something.
I followed the pattern (large) including the yarn and colors except I left off one diamond repeat on the thumb and it was plenty long. My original plan was to make these flip top mittens but I was having such a time with the thumbs that we (my sister and I) decided the flip top wasn’t necessary.
I used Knit Picks City Tweed in Dungaree and Andean Silk in Cream. I loved working with this yarn though it is sticky. Just don’t make many mistakes to tink or frog.
Thinking I would make two pairs of these mittens, I bought another Andean Silk in cream and City Tweed in Cottontail that appears to be discontinued. It’s a taupe color. I’ll find something else to knit with it.
The picture turned out great. I’m glad you finished them. I’m sure you will find something else to knit with your yarn.
I love these mittens…they are very warm. Thank you little sister for giving them to me and not making me pay for them…..just joking!
