Name: Peekaboo Metro Mittens
Pattern: (name, author, source) Peekaboo Mittens from Magknits February 2007 and the Subway Mittens from Winter 2007 Interweave Knits.
Note: The Peekaboo pattern is no longer available via Magknits. The designer can be found at this blog or the pattern is available on Ravelry as a FREE download .
Size(s): (to fit, finished size) Approx. 8″ hand circumference
Yarn: (name, fibre, weight, colour) Sirdar Denim Ultra in Purple Heather, acrylic/cotton/wool super chunky yarn. Used about 82 yds (75 m) for 1 pair.
Needles: (size, material, style) US15, plastic (Denise Interchangeable), circular
Knitting style: (for stitch patterns) Combination throughout
Modifications: Added finger openings on palm. Worked in much larger yarn and so adjusted the numbers accordingly. Made cuff a little longer than stated in pattern. Omitted the pocket flap (would have been too bulky)
Notes: Pretty quick mittens to make in this larger yarn and I didn’t find any errors in the pattern. In all likelihood, I’ll make another pair of these, but in a thinner yarn.
I don’t need any fastening on the pockets because they are quite tight on my bus pass and library card (I’m so street it hurts!)
