Snapdragon Flip-Tops


This mitten pattern by Ysolda was a conviniently small project after a couple of larger ones. The yarn I used was Paksu Pirkkalanka by Pirkanmaan kotityƶ Oy, something I've found well suited for mitten projects. The needle size I used was 3.5 mm, but the cuff is still almost too loose. If I knit these again, I'd use a smaller needle for the cabled section. We'll see if the button loop is going to be in the way in every day used when the tops are on. One use I can think of for these kind of mittens is outdoor photography in the winter time.

  5. I love your orange mittens, so bright and cheerful for the winter. I just finished those myself and I'm wondering too about the button loop. Worst case scenario, it annoys me and I just cut it off and bind off the tip. I just have to wait for winter to arrive now.
