Sock Monkey Mittens (with afterthought thumb)


Well I finally got my act together and got the pattern written up for my sock monkey mittens. These mittens are knit on 2 circular needles (my preference) with a bulkier yarn #5 and I use an afterthought thumb. This design goes fast because you don’t have to think about adding stitches for your thumb gusset. Easy peasy style and that is what I am into right now.. ..  easy.. fast.. non thinking patterns. I  find it easy to knit the both mittens at the same time that way you won’t have the one mitten done syndrome.. many’s a time I have knit one mitten and then put it down to come back and knit the second mitten only to move on to something else. I am not saying that my lack of concentration is going.. yeh.. I guess that is exactly what I am saying. So to alleviate that problem I just knit both mittens at the same time. Done and done!…………………………….
