Top Down Mitts

Here is the newest pair of mitts being knit. As you can see they are knit from the top down. They start out with the magic cast on and increase every other row until they fit your hand. They are going to have a random stripe pattern in various colours to add some excitement while knitting in stocking stitch down to the thumb. For something else different, this pair of mitts is going to have the after thought thumb. So far this has been fun to knit once you get the first couple of rows knit. Getting started is a bit tricky. My first tip for knitting mitts top down is to cast on loosely!!

Tonight is another knitting night at Carries shop. Fun, fun, fun! See you there!
