I have done it! I have finally finished another whole knitting project a mere 3 or 4 years after I completed my first ever projects (a knitted flower that I can’t find the post for) I have made a pair of what I am calling gloves, but they might be mittens I can’t remember what the pattern I first started to follow called them;
They were based on a free pattern from Ravelry that I changed as I went along as they were much longer than I wanted.
- Cast on 30st and join
- Ribbing for 15 rows (k1, p1, k1)
- Knit stockinette for 10 rows
- 13 rows stockinette not in the round (knit one row, pearl one row)
- Join then continue in the round for 13 rows
- ribbing for 3 rows
- Bind off and weave in end
It is super easy when you get going, even though it has taken me the best part of 6 months to complete. After finishing my first second glove I weaved the end in much too tightly and so the whole glove was useless, I did try to unpick it but just made a bigger mess than I started with.
They are being worn with great pride.
