Are your hands cold?

Past week it has been freezing and nasty in Montreal. Especially last Wednesday the cold was bone chilling and the strong wind did not help. I have a remedy for keeping at least your hands warm, though. Knit on 8 mm (US size 11) needles to get a dense fabric with a super bulky yarn these mitts are sure to keep your digits cozy – even at -18 Centigrade with a wind chill of -26.

Find the pattern here.

But wait, there’s more. A hat to go with the Burly Mitts. You need about 75 yards of a super bulky yarn – I used Brown Sheep “Burly Spun” in Oat, a wide variety of colours is available at the store – for the pair of mitts and a similar amount for the hat. Another yarn I can recommend for these projects is  Blue Sky Aplaca’s “Bulky”, a mix of Alpaca and Wool

I had much fun making these up, especially since large needles and big yarn make a quick project of both!

    Your hat is cute, but there is an error in the cast on. The pattern says “cast on 19 stitches”…whoa…wrong! I believe it should read cast on 49 sts. Is that right? Big difference!!

    Thank you, Carol Ann, for pointing out this mistake! You want to cast on 49 sts, of course. I have uploaded the corrected pdf.

    Good! It was easy to figure out from the decrease to 48 sts row, but I knew you’d like to have a clean copy for the knitting folks out there:)
