For a green lover

For a green lover

P1010673

Started yesterday evening and finished this mitts today. You can find the pattern here. It’s well written with lots of pictures.

These are my alterations for the project:

Finished after 9 rows of hearts and not 10. Worked one round of sc to finish.

By using only 2 colors I didn’t have to cut yarn at the end of each round. I carried the yarn inside the mitts.

I found the thumb wouldn’t work. So, I did it as follows:

Rnd 1: same as in pattern

Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc in same st and in next two scs, sc2tog, sc in next 3 scs, sc2tog, sc in next 6 scs, sc2tog, sl st in first sc.

Rnd 3: Ch 1, sc in same st and in next two scs, sc2tog, sc in next 2 scs, sc2tog, sc in next 5 scs, sc2tog, sl st in first sc.

Rnd 4 and 5: sc around

 

I think it’s a very nice and quick project, especially  for Valentine’s Day!
