After a few months of experimenting and testing, our newest knitting pattern has been released! It's a playful twist on our traditional thumbless mini mittens for babies.
This striped version is knitted in the round with a lightweight 3 yarn. I chose K+C Smooth because it knits up so nicely for something this delicate. There's a wide variety of colorful and neutral options for creating many stripe combinations.
Since knitting in the round is actually a spiral, it can be tricky to keeps stripes looking even with a "step" in between rows. As always, Vogue Knitting: The Ultimate Knitting Book helped me figure out how to solve this tricky problem! This pattern uses the jogless join technique to keep the striped rows even.
