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.
