Earlier this year, Carissa and I set up a crafting swap‚Ä¶my knitting for her needlepoint. We‚Äôre both tapped out on the hobbies and have an ever increasing selection of our own crafts displayed in our homes, so this was a great way to swap projects without having to invest in or learn a new craft.
I made up these Dashing hand warmers for her. Because this is a men‚Äôs pattern and the previous pair that I made for myself came out a little bit too big, I made a few adjustments to the pattern to size it down a bit.
Pattern: Dashing Mits (from Knitty.com)
Yarn: Berroco Pure Merino
Color: Pesto Genovese (perfect because Carissa is a foodie!)
Needles: Size 5 for a smaller gauge
Adjustments: Reduced thumb length to 6 rows and reduced thumb to knuckle length from 18 rows to 14 rows
