Funky elbow-length mittens
Completed in December 2010

I specifically wanted to design some very long, elbow-length mittens.

For this pattern, I used Red Heart brand Eco-Ways Recycled blend yarn, in worsted weight, color #3313 'oyster' (off white), and color 'asparagus' (dark green).

The fiber content is 70 percent acrylic and 30 percent recylced polyester, gasp! At least it is machine washable.

I knit these mittens from the fingertips up, so that I could use every bit of the yarn.

The two mittens have the same palm-side stripes but are mis-matched on purpose. Only one mitten has the Norwegian star motif. It was more interesting to knit two mittens that are alike but not identical.

And here's my niece, the Tuesday, on the Saturday, Christmas Day, wearing the funny gifted mittens.
