Mitten garland

By spotogspindel | November 28, 2011

Remember the Anthropologie mitten garland I showed you a while ago? I really fell in love with it. Too bad it was all sold out! Lucky for me, I know how to knit! 🙂 At first I tried making one in quite chunky wool yarn. Kind of cute, but difficult to get the size I wanted. But now, with thinner yarn, I finally got them right!

Using knitting pins #3, cast on 20 stitches. Knit one, purl one, making a rib…. for five rounds. Then increase a stitch pr three stitches and switching to all plain knit stitching, knit another 11 rounds before you decrease 2 stitches on either side each round.

The thumb is a cheating-thumb. I added that later, by picking up 12 stitches from what was already knitted, and then just started knitting rounds again. 5 rounds before connecting 2 and 2 stitches together until there are none left.

All loose ends are just tied together in a double knot and the ends left on the inside. Since it´s a decorative object, and not a wear-and-tear-thing, it should hold up no problem at all.

They´re kind of cute, aren´t they? I´m looking forward to getting them on the tree! 🙂
