Elf House Slippers

 Elf Shoes

Loom Knitting Advent, day 22, brings you a whimsical pair of Elf slippers.

Designed by Isela Phelps

Day 22

Knitting loom: Sock Loom 2 (36 pegs)

Yarn: Approx 150 yards of worsted weight wool.  Patons Classic Wool worsted in Bright Red and White was used in sample.

Notions: knitting tool, tapestry needle, row counter (optional).

Size: Shown fits a size 5-9 US women.

Abbreviations

cc=contrasting color (White)

cont=continue

K=knit stitch

k2tog=A right slanting decrease. Takes place over 2 pegs. Number the pegs 1 and 2, from right to left, as follows: Peg 2 -Peg 1.  Remove stitch from peg 1 and hold it. Move stitch from peg 2 to peg 1. Place the loop you are holding back on peg 1. Work both loops together as one loop. *Note: usually, you move this loop over to peg 2 to leave peg 1 empty to create a yarn over.

mc=main color (Red)

P=purl stitch

rem=remain

Rep=repeat

rnd(s)=round(s)

st(s)=stitch(es)

ssk= A left slanting decrease. Takes place over 2 pegs. Number the pegs 1 and 2, from right to left, as follows: Peg 2 -Peg 1.  Remove stitch from peg 2 and place it on peg 1. Work both loops together as one loop.

W&T=wrap and turn. The process of wrapping the peg and turning to work in the opposite direction on the loom. Lift the stitch/loop off the peg, wrap the peg so that the yarn goes around the peg and ends towards the front of the peg—if working in a clockwise direction around the loom, wrap the peg counterclockwise; if working in a clockwise direction around the loom, wrap the peg clockwise. See video demonstrating a W&T (Around 2:26)

YO=Yarn over. Created by ewraping the empty peg. Used to create the opening for lace items–it creates a small hole. Note: On the next row, untwist the ewrap and place this strand of yarn in front of the peg, then work the peg as instructed (either purl it or knit it).

Angel Square (double knit)

Christmas Angel w/ Trumpet

fullsizeangel1

Loom Knitting Advent, day 21, brings you a lovely double knit square with an intarsia motif.

Designed by Pat Novak

Day 21

Loom:  All-n-One Loom set up for double knit with 1 cm spacing.

Yarn:  Paton’s Classic Wool, 100% wool, 120 yds per skein.  Hand wash and lay flat to dry.  Colors used are white (W) and Gold (G).  Background is Natural, or Blue in Lions Brand Alpine Wool in BayLeaf.  Both yarns are 100% wool #5 with great color assortments.  Dark Spruce green also works well.  This will be noted as (B) yarn in pattern for ‘background’.  One skein of (B) and 1/2 skein of (W), and small amount of (G).

Stitch:  Stockinette

Notions Needed:  Knit hook, crochet hook, scissors, large tapestry needle

Size:  10 X 10 inches blocked

Gauge:  4 sts and 5 rows=1 inch  Abbreviations:  R=right, L=left, yds=yards

You may want to add a piece of painters tape on the board near you and note the number of each peg.  This will really make it easier than counting pegs each row.  Also, the graph is explained in the following instructions working from left to right.  You may want to re-number your graph on paper,  so print it out before you begin.

Instructions

Cast On 30 stitches in Stockinette, (B) yarn.

Rows 1-3:  Work in stockinette stitch.

Row 4:  Tie on (W) yarn at peg #16.  Work pegs # 16-20 in stockinette.  Lay yarn down.  Go back to start of row and weave in stockinette on all pegs with (B), skipping the pegs with (W) yarn.  Hook over all.

Rows 5-24:  All these rows will be a combination of the (B) and the (W) yarn worked in stockinette.  Work the (W) first on designated pegs.  Then cover the rest of the pegs with the (B) yarn.  Hook over.

The pegs to be wrapped with (W), by row, are as follows.

Row 5:  Pegs 15-24

Row 6:  Pegs 14-23

Row 7:  Pegs 14-23

Row 8:  Pegs 13-22

Row 9:  Pegs 13-21

Row 10:  Pegs 13-21

Row 18:  Peg 11, and pegs 15-17, and pegs 22-25

Row 24:  Pegs 8-10, and pegs 15-23

Row 25:  Tie on (G) yarn at peg #5 and wrap pegs 5 and 6, front to back.  Lay down yarn.

Wrap in stockinette with (W) yarn, peg 9, and 14-15, and pegs 18-23.  Complete row with (B) yarn.

Row 26:  Pegs 4-12 with (G) yarn, front to back.  Pick up (W) yarn and work in stockinette on pegs 13-15, and pegs 18-23.  Complete row with (B) yarn.

Row 27:  Pegs 5-6, and peg 28 with (G), peg 9, and pegs 13-16, and pegs 19-23 with (W) yarn.  Complete row with (B) yarn.

Row 28:  Pegs 28-29 with (G) yarn.  Pegs 12-16, and pegs 21-22 with (W) yarn.  Complete row with (B) yarn.

Row 29:  Peg 28 with (G) yarn.  Pegs 12-16 with (W) yarn.  Complete row with (B) yarn.

Row 30:  Pegs 12-16 with (W) yarweaveangeln.

Row 31:  Pegs 13-15 with (W) yarn.

Row 32-40:  These rows will be (B) yarn except for a series of (G) stars.  Each star consists of 4 stitches each, one stitch, and 3 stitches in next row, and then last stitch in next row.  See graph.  You can add as many of these stars in (G) yarn as desired.  The Christmas Angel will love lots of bright stars.

 

Bind off after row 40 is complete with the 2-loop method.  Finish the anchor yarn edge the same and remove the anchor yarn.

Lightly mist and block the square.  It can be added to your other squares or used alone.

  • Isela, you have done it again! I am a lover of the Chevron stitch in both knit and crochet. I know I will enjoy making this hat. Thanks for sharing. Have a great Christmas!!!

  • I love this one. I take it it is one strand of yarn only. Please confirm, because it looks so snug.

  • Isela, I love the Cowl pattern but I thinks the bind off is an error. It says to use the “gathered removal method”. Is that correct?

  • Sue, thank you. Yes, it should say basic bind off method. I have fixed it.

  • I’d love to see how this looks on! Any pics of someone wearing it?

  • All the pictures of the cowl are without a model.

  • Still showing incorrect bind off, Bind off with gather removal method.it should say basic bind off method

  • Kathy, refresh your browser. Note: there is a hat pattern at the end of the pattern that does require a gather removal method.

  • Just beautiful!

  • Could you please make this downloadable. i ordered the 38″ board to do the afghan, looking forward to making it thanks

  • Jean, you can copy it to your desktop and save it to your computer.

  • i am working on this afghan and just not sure how to do the weave, i am on row 12 and did it according to the directions, i get to the end of the row and hook it over then i do the red on the others i end up with both yarns at the end of the row. Is this correct? and if it is do i then take my yarns to peg 1 to start the next row or do i start my next row by turning my board and starting on peg 111 as peg number 1. on my other rows there wasn’t alot of changing colors so i just wraped as i went and didn’t have any issues til now. Normally i never turn my board because i can do it without turning it, to me it is a pain and cumbursome to keep turning it. I would like to see a video of how to do rows 12 and 13 so i can see how you are suspose to do them. it doesn’t have to be a professional video, just take out your cell phone and video tape you doing it. thanks so much i really want this to look as good as the designer’s . This is the nicest afghan that has been posted in a long time and was very expensive since i had to buy the knitting board and the yarn that was a fortune and really don’t want to give up on doing it. thanks again

  • Can the AIO or the sock loom be used for this ?

  • The pattern is best made as written, but if you are adventurous and willing to try it you would have to experiment with how many stitches to use and how many repeats of the pattern to make it the size you want. Or you might be able to use it as written if you skip every other peg, or use two pegs as one on the AIO loom.

Whimsical Loom Knits – Peppermint Pinwheel

IMG_3307 (1024x741)

Loom Knitting Advent – Day 14 brings you a sweet little pinwheel design worked in red and white to resemble a peppermint candy.

Designed by Jenny Stark

Day 14

 

Bring a little zing to your holidays with these pretty little peppermint pinwheels.  These delightful little pinwheels look intricate, but they are simple to make and so much fun!

 

Knitting loom: KB Sock Loom EFG

Yarn: Red Heart Classic Crochet Thread in White, and in Victory Red

Notions: knitting tool, yarn needle, scissors

Gauge: Not essential for this project.

Size: Approximately 1.75″ in diameter

Abbreviations

K=knit stitch

P=purl stitch

Sl=slip

Techniques

Double E-wrap Cast-On:  Wrap the first peg twice.  With the knitting tool, pull the lower wrap past the upper wrap and over the top of the peg.  Repeat this process for each of the remaining pegs.  Cast on is now complete.  Continue on as directed in the pattern.

U-wrap Knit Stitch:  Bring the working yarn in front of the peg to be worked, above the existing stitch on the peg.  Bend the working yarn around the peg, creating a u shaped wrap. Knit the lower stitch over the u wrap.

Slip:  For the purposes of this project, slip simply means to skip the peg.

Basic Bind Off:  Knit the first two pegs.  Move the stitch from the second peg over to the first peg.  Knit the lower stitch over the upper stitch.  One stitch has now been bound off. Move the stitch from peg 1 to the empty peg.  This is now peg 1.  Knit the next stitch.  Move the stitch that was just knit over to the first peg.  Knit the lower stitch over the upper stitch.  Continue working in this manner until there is one stitch left. Cut the working yarn, leaving a yarn tail that is at least 4” long.  Wrap the yarn tail around the last peg.  Knit the last stitch over the yarn tail and pull the yarn tail out through the stitch.  Bind off is now complete.

 INSTRUCTIONS

Begin with the white yarn.  Cast on 6 stitches using the double e-wrap cast on method.

Wedge Pattern

Row 1:  Sl 1, K5

Row 2:  P5, K1

Row 3:  Sl 1, K4

Row 4:  P4, K1

Row 7:  Sl 1, K2

Row 8:  P2, K1

Row 9:  Sl 1, K1

Row 10:  P1, K1

Row 11:  Sl 1, K5

The first wedge is now complete.  Drop the white yarn to the center of the loom, but do not cut it.

Switch to the red yarn.  Beginning on the left side of the knitted work, repeat rows 2 through 11 of the wedge pattern.  The second wedge is now complete.  Drop the red yarn to the center of the loom, but do not cut it.

Pick up the white yarn.  Repeat rows 2 through 11 of the wedge pattern.  The third wedge is now complete.  Drop the white yarn to the center of the loom, but do not cut it.

Pick up the red yarn.  Repeat rows 2 through 11 of the wedge pattern.  The fourth wedge is now complete.  Drop the red yarn to the center of the loom, but do not cut it.

Pick up the red yarn.  Repeat rows 2 through 11 of the wedge pattern.  The sixth wedge is now complete.  Drop the red yarn to the center of the loom, but do not cut it.

Pick up the white yarn.  Repeat rows 2 through 11 of the wedge pattern.  The seventh wedge is now complete.  Drop the white yarn to the center of the loom, but do not cut it.

Pick up the red yarn.  Repeat rows 2 through 11 of the wedge pattern.  The eighth wedge is now complete.  Drop the red yarn to the center of the loom, but do not cut it.

Pick up the white yarn.  Repeat rows 2 through 11 of the wedge pattern.  The ninth wedge is now complete.  Cut the white yarn, leaving a 4” yarn tail.  Drop the yarn tail to the center of the loom.

Pick up the red yarn.  Repeat rows 2 through 11 of the wedge pattern.  The final wedge is now complete.

Remove the pinwheel from the loom using the basic bind off method.  Cut the red yarn, leaving a 12” yarn tail.  Fasten off.  Using the 12” yarn tail, seam the first wedge and the tenth wedge together.

Weave in all yarn ends.

 

A few ideas for your pretty pinwheels:

  • Add an ornament hanger and put a pinwheel in your Christmas tree.
  • Add a magnet to the back of a pinwheel and stick it on your refrigerator.
  • Add a hair clip to the back of a pinwheel and wear it in your hair.
  • Add a pin finding to the back of a pinwheel and wear it on your clothing.
  • Decorate the top of a Christmas present with a peppermint pinwheel.
  • Decorate the front of a Christmas card with a peppermint pinwheel.
  • Use a pinwheel as an applique in your next knitting project.

 

Want a bigger peppermint pinwheel?  Follow this same pattern using worsted weight yarn on the KB Sock Loom 2:

  • I have tried this pattern twice now & I don’t get the ridges that are shown in the pattern- what am I doing wrong/ Are the knit stitches perhaps not ewrap??

  • The knit stitches are a “knit stitch” not ewrap. You may substitute with a U-knit stitch. An ewrap will look different and it will create a larger item.

  • I am guessing that this can be done on the KB hat loom set for 80 pins? I think this is a lovely pattern.

  • Yes, you can do it also on the KB Hat loom.

  • Do you happen to have a youtube on this? I am much better seeing how it’s done. :)

Holiday Snowman Square (double knit)

Loom Knitting Advent, Day 10, brings you another lovely double knit square! Frosty the snowman! Add this beautiful intarsia design to any of your double knits!

snowman2s

Day 9

Designed by Pat Novak

Loom: All-n-One Loom set up for double knit with 1cm spacing

Yarn: Paton’s Classic Wool Roving, 100% wool #5, 120 yds per skein. Hand wash and dry flat. Colors Grey/blue (G), White (W), Cranberry (C), Black (B), Cherry Red (R), Orange (O). 1 skein of G and W yarn and 1 skein B, and ½ skein of C, R, and small amount of O yarn for nose.

Black yarn will need to be of another yarn company. Any wool or blend #5 yarn can be used.

Stitches: Stockinette and back- to- back weave

Notions Needed: Knit hook, crochet hook, large tapestry needle

Size: 10 X 10 inches

Abbreviations: R=right, L=left, Back to back weave=b/b, This is a single pass to cover both pegs of one stitch by wrapping top peg, straight down to bottom peg. See photo at end of instructions.

Pattern Notes:

1-Always start the square at the bottom of the graph, working from L to R. Focus only on that row, until completed.

2-Be sure to start each row with the loom facing you. The cast on yarn tail will be on the left side. Check this before starting a new row, so the design will be correctly applied.

3-If you have a stitch that you want to stand out, such as a snowflake, or the snowman’s eye, you can wrap the pegs with a double wrap.

4-When following the graph on paper, be sure to line-out each row once it is complete. You may also want to fold the printed graph over after each row, so that you are always looking at the current row.  Also, best to number the stitches 1-30 across the bottom.

5-Try to use one continuous stockinette stitch on any color that has several rows, or more than just a few stitches. Then use the b/b wrap on pegs of just a single, or a few stitches.

6-If you carry the main background color throughout the square, it will connect the colors next to it. If you choose to cut separate yarns for each color used, you will need to twist the 2 yarns together at each joint, or cut and tie the colors together.

7-If you have just a few stitches of a color, it is best to cut a piece of the yarn, tie it into the row when needed. Leave it attached until all the stitches are complete for that color, even when it consists of several rows, then you can tie it to adjoining yarn and knot. Example of this would be orange nose of snowman.

8-You can add some accents to the square after it’s complete with some extra stitches, using yarn and tapestry needle, if desired. Example of this would be some falling snow around the snowman.

The (W), and (G), and (C) yarns will be done in stockinette weave, unless otherwise noted. Follow instructions for accent colors of (B), (O), and (R).

Christmas Stocking Square (double knit)

square_stockingcr

Loom Knitting Advent, Day 9, brings you another lovely double knit square! Add this beautiful intarsia design to any of your double knits!

Designed by Pat Novak

Day 9

Loom:  All-n-One Loom, set up for double knit with 1cm spacing

Yarn: Patons Classic Wool Roving #5, 100% wool, hand wash and dry flat.  Natural background 1 skein, Dark Green ½ skein, Cherry red ½ skein, Aran white ½ skein, Lion Brand Homespun Holiday Green 5 yds for stripes.

N=natural, S=Spruce green, R=Red, G=green holiday, W=white.

Stitches: Stockinette and back- to- back wrap (similar to Figure 8, but not twisted), covering both front and back pegs of one stitch, working straight across from top peg to lower. Used when a design is only a single stitch or a few stitches. See photo at end of pattern.

Notions: Knit hook, Crochet hook #4 or 5, scissors, tapestry needle

Size: 10 X 10 inches completed

Gauge: 4 sts and 5 rows=1 inch

Abbreviations: R=right, L=left, b/b =back to back wrap

 

Pattern Notes:

1.Always start the square at the bottom of the graph, working from L to R. Focus only on that row, until completed.  Be sure to work the graph from Left to Right.

2.Be sure to start each row with the loom facing you. The cast on yarn tail will be on the left side. Check this before starting a new row, so the design will be correctly applied.

3.When following the graph on paper, be sure to line-out each row once it is complete as you work up the graph. You may also want to fold the printed graph over after each row, so that you are always looking at the current row. Re mark the peg numbers.

4.Try to use one continuous stockinette weave on any color that has several rows, or more than just a few stitches. Then use the b/b wrap on pegs of just a few stitches.

5.If you carry the main background color throughout the square, it will connect the colors next to it. If you choose to cut separate yarns for each color used, you will need to twist the 2 yarns together at each joint, or cut and tie the colors together. Example of this is the holly berries on cuff of stocking.

6.If you have just a few stitches of a color, best to cut a piece of the yarn, tie it into the row when needed. Leave it attached until all the stitches are complete for that color, even when it consists of several rows, then you can tie it to adjoining yarn and knot.

Once the square is complete, it is recommended to mist with warm water and block. Allow wool to dry completely before using it in your project.

INSTRUCTIONS

Cast on 30 stitches in natural color (N) in Stockinette stitch.

Rows 1-5: Work in stockinette.

Row 6: For toe and heel areas, cut 2 strands, each 3’ long in (S) color. Tie on one yarn at peg 9, and one at peg 20, between the boards. Tie on the (R) yarn at peg 12.

Cut 2 pieces of (S) yarn about 3’ long. Cut 2 pieces of (R) yarn about 2’ long.

Row 29: Tie on one (S) yarn at peg 23. Double wrap this peg with (S) in b/b weave. Start the (W) yarn at peg 9 and work in stockinette for 17 stitches, skipping peg 23 where you have placed the (S) yarn. Complete the row with (N) yarn in stockinette.

Row 30: Tie in the (S) (2nd piece) on peg 13 and double wrap this peg in b/b weave. Tie on one piece of (R) yarn on peg 23 and double wrap. Double wrap peg 22 and 24 with the (S) yarn in b/b weave.

2. Be sure to start each row with the loom facing you. The cast on yarn tail will be on the left side. Check this before starting a new row, so the design will be correctly applied.

3. When following the graph on paper, be sure to line-out each row once it is complete. You may also want to fold the printed graph over after each row, so that you are always looking at the current row.

5. If you carry the main background color throughout the square, it will connect the colors next to it. If you choose to cut separate yarns for each color used, you will need to twist the 2 yarns together at each joint, or cut and tie the colors together.

6. If you have just a few stitches of a color, it is best to cut a piece of the yarn, tie it into the row when needed. Leave it attached until all the stitches are complete for that color, even when it consists of several rows, then you can tie it to adjoining yarn and knot.

  • How is it, Isela, has gotten MORE beautiful over the years? I’ll have what she’s having, lol!

    Beautiful hat, too!!!

  • Thank you Alyna!

  • How would I Convert this to a1/2 gauge loom? How any pegs?

  • Use the gauge that is provided and then try to match it to your loom. You could also use the regular number of pegs that you use for a hat in your 1/2 gauge and follow the stitch pattern. The stitch pattern is a multiple of 4 (*k2, p2), worked for about 5 inches, then one round of knit, then again the ribbing as in the beginning, except reversed (*p2, k2), knit for 5 inches, then a few rounds in stockinette. Then bind off.

  • TY for responding! Will give it. Try!

  • You’re welcome!

  • i wonder, what CO method did you use?

  • The ewrap cast on. After completing the project, I tightened up the cast on. However, you can use whatever cast on you prefer.

  • did u use regular knit stitch? what do u think about using the uknit? did u reverse rib to p2k2 just for design. thanks

  • Regular Knit Stitch. If you want to substitute with the uknit stitch, you can do it, however, the item may be smaller. The reverse rib (p2,k2) was done so that when you flip over the brim, the knits sit inside the purls of the bottom layer.

Mistletoe Mittens (double knit)

mittens2

 

Designed by Pat Novak, Knit by Unknown knitter

Loom: All-n-One Loom set up for double knit with 1cm spacer

Stitches: Rib Stitch and Stockinette

Yarn:  Plymouth Encore Chunky wool/acrylic blend.  1 skein of red and 1/2 skein multi pink. Or, use any wool/acrylic #6 yarn of choice in 2 colors.  (R)=red, (M)=Multi

Notions: Knit hook, crochet hook, large sewing needle, (2) heavy duty stitch holders for thumbs

Size: Youth small and (medium adult) Youth- Folded Mitten: cuff to top=10”   Width at bottom of thumb=4.5”  Thumb length=3”  Cuff width=3.5”

Gauge: 3 sts and 5 rows=1”

INSTRUCTIONS

Cast on 22 (26) stitches in stockinette with (M) yarn. Place anchor yarn.

Work (6) rows in rib stitch.

Tie on (R) yarn at 2nd stitch. Cut and knot (M) yarn.

Work 8 (10) rows in rib stitch with (R) yarn.

Change to stockinette and work (2) rows.

Next row, increase one stitch each end.

Work row in stockinette.

Work 3 (4) additional rows in stockinette.

 

Increase Row:

You will increase 6 (8) times across row. This means you need to shuffle all the loops on your pegs over to create 6 (8) open pegs. Move loops outward on pegs 3, 7, and 12 ( and 14 for larger size) on left side of loom, creating open pegs. Do the same thing on right side. Do this to both boards.   Pick up loops from previous row on pegs adjacent to open pegs and place the loops onto the open pegs. You now have 6 (8) additional stitches.

Work the 30 (36) stitches for 2 (4) additional rows.

Thumb Opening:

Slip center 10 stitches onto a stitch holder, one for each board. Drop the holders with loops secured, thru the boards, so that the holders are below the boards. Shift the 10 (13) loops of each side together, so that they are adjacent to each other in center. Do this slowly and carefully as it is important.

thumb2

At center of loom, lift loop on peg 10 and 11. Place loop 10 on peg 11. Place loop 11 on peg 10. Do this to both boards. This twist will reinforce the thumb, and pull the stitches together.  Larger size, use the loops on pegs 11 and 12.

Work additional 12 (16) rows in stockinette.

 

 

Decrease Row:

Decrease (1) stitch each end. Simply place first and last stitch, on each board, onto adjacent pegs so that these pegs now have 2 loops and there are new empty peg at each end of loom.

At center, place (2) center loops onto the adjacent pegs, one to right and one to left.

This creates (2) open pegs in center.

Work row in stockinette, skipping the open pegs in center of loom. Hook over all stitches, and work the pegs with 2 loops as one.   All pegs will have just one loop.

Move loops over to center with no open pegs.

Repeat the decrease row.

Hook over, so that all pegs have just one loop.

Shift all loops over to meet the other set of loops, so that they are adjacent, with no open pegs.

Repeat the decrease row (2) additional times.

Shift all loops on one board over to meet the other set of loops on opposite board.

You have 2 loops on all pegs on one board. Bind off by lifting both loops and pulling 2 loops thru 2 loops. Knot at end of board. Remove from loom.

Thumb Finishing:

Place the (10) thumb loops back onto the boards from the stitch holders. This will be tight, so you may want to pull up on all 10 loops on each stitch holder to loosen them up before trying to transfer them back to loom.

Be sure to place them directly across, so that both pegs of each stitch are lined up.

Tie in yarn (R) to 2nd inside stitch.

Work in stockinette for 2 (3) rows.

Tie on (M) yarn. Cut (R) yarn and knot.

Work in stockinette for 6 (8) rows with (M) yarn.

Decrease all stitches by placing loop 1 onto 2 and 3 onto 4, and 5 onto 6, 7 onto 8, and 9 onto 10. This leaves 2 loops on every other peg and an empty peg between. Hook over, one over one.

Move all loops together, so that there are no empty pegs.

Cut yarn with a 10” tail for sewing the thumb.

Thread yarn tail onto sewing needle. To remove the mitten from loom, transfer the loops onto the yarn tail. Hold loops on yarn and remove the loom.

Bind Off at anchor yarn with 2-loop method or crochet across the loops for even edge.

Sewing:

Fold mitten over.

Sew thumb with yarn tail, easing the top edges to a rounded finish.

Secure well at base of thumb.

Sew mitten with matching yarn for each section of mitten, easing in the top for a nice oval shape. Continue sewing to close in the mitten.

Tuck in all yarn tails.

Repeat all for the 2nd mitten.

  • These are precious! I can’t wait to knit some for the grand kids and a pair for me as well. These Advent knitting patterns are just the greatest idea…thanks for doing this for us!

  • These are AWESOME!!! I really need to try this!!!

  • If I wanted to make these larger, for men, what would you recommend?

  • Thanks, Jacquelyn. The mitts were actually knit by an Unknown knitter. I just wrote the pattern for everyone to share. They will now be donated in our Holiday program for American Vets and Homeless children. We will be shipping about Dec 20 to these organizations.

  • Hi Alyna, The cuff is plenty large for woman or man in the adult size, but it can be enlarged with cast on of 28 stitches. You can make the palm longer by working a few more rows before the thumb opening. Then, when you do the increase row, you an add another 2 or 4 increases. You can also make the finger area longer by working more rows before the decrease rows. Just be sure you start your mitten in center of the loom so you will have plenty of room for the increases. If you add another 2 inc to the increase row, and another 2 to the cast on, you will be working on 40 pegs until the decrease starts.

  • Hi Catherine, I know you’ll have fun with this, as it’s easy and fun. Thanks, Pat

  • These mitts look so soft and cozy. I love the pattern name, too!

  • Hi Jenny, Thanks. They just made me think of mistletoe. Have a great holiday.
