Convertible Mittens

IMG_0718_edited-1

These mittens wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for the movie, Your Sister’s Sister. We watched it with my parents over Thanksgiving weekend. One of the main characters wore a pair of cute, red convertible mittens throughout the movie. As a  knitter, I noticed and admired the well-fitting mittens.

The next morning at breakfast, my Mom asked if anyone had noticed the red mittens. It turns out she wanted a pair. After some online searching, we concluded she would not find what she wanted ready-to-wear, so I offered to make her a pair of mittens for Christmas.

I selected the pattern Red is Best, by Jane Richmond. I liked this pattern because it had a clean design and came in multiple sizes, one of which looked like the perfect size for my Mom.

My Mom loves her new mittens! I haven’t seen them on her, but she reports that they fit her perfectly.

This was a great pattern! Very well written and fun to knit. I highly recommend it! I have plans to make a pair for myself.

Details:

Pattern:  Red is Best, by Jane Richmond.

Yarn:  HiKoo Simpliworsted. I used color Seattle Sky.

    I wore my new mittens just this morning on a 37 degree, sunny day and they were so cozy and warm. There is also room for hand warmers and you can drive with them due to the fold-back feature. Highly recommended!
