I made this mismatched pair of mittens for my granddaughter in '06 (this is an old pic, but they still look pretty good, if a little worn and well-loved). This week's pattern and chart is for the Snowman mitten. Next week's will be the snowflake mitten. These mittens are the same on the front and back, so you can make a pair of either, or replicate my mis-mated pair. If you want to make them shorter, begin the top decreases a little earlier (it won't mess up the snowman heads too much). If you want to make them longer, do a few rows of the vertical striped top before beginning the decreases. If you want to make them wider, add a few stitches to either side of the chart (the same number on both sides) and do a few more increases on the thumb gusset. If you want to make them Adult size, I suspect using DK yarn and size 3 needles will do the trick.
This chart was adapted from a Seasonal Vest pattern that I did for Knit Picks. That pattern is now out of print, and the rights reverted to me.
