I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Baltar's Rebellion Mittens

This pattern is not the easiest to read, I believe it can use clarifications, but  perhaps it is me.   Is not a bad pattern, but could use some housecleaning  I found it  difficult to read, but I got the mitten done. It actually assumes that you know how to set the stitches on DPNs  or Circular needles. If you did not make mittens or gloves before, this will not be the best pattern for you. I  don't know how my gauge got so crazy, but the pattern calls for worsted weight yarn, I am using my homespun. There you have to be careful. My homespun made me drop the needle size from US 6 to US 3, and it works for me, I got gauge.

I used DPNs because I have found them very useful when making the fingers on mittens and gloves.  Two circulars are two messy and Magic loop can get crazy when making the pinkie , lol.

Anyway my friends, these gloves are very substantial and I am hoping to make another one in the next day or two. I made this fingerless mitt over night, fast and easy; now to make the Left Hand .  I did change one thing on this pattern ad that was no ribbing on the fingers, I find that unattractive. I am hoping to use this yarn to make a hat  for these mitts, stay tuned. Thanks for stopping by.
