Pattern #34 Checkered Mittens

Checkered Mittens
The Checkered Mittens were one of the first projects I made from the 60 Quick Knits book. As soon as I saw this pattern I thought of my mom. I started and finished them in July but my mom did not receive them until Christmas Eve. I enjoyed making them, though the thumb was a bit difficult. I noticed after completing them that there was an errata on the thumb. I did not use the errata, though I just adjusted them on my own. The other thing I would like to change is the height of the mittens. I think they seem a snug on my fingers, but my mom has a smaller hand so they work for her.

After my mom received the mittens she said that they seemed very warm. I told her that they were made of wool. She was surprised at the quality of wool and the fact they were not itchy. This is one of the many reasons I love Cascade 220 yarn. It is warm, quality wool that does not cost an arm and a leg to buy.
