Wyoming Spring Mitts

I designed this pattern to go with Yarnster by Shannon Cook

Average adult

DK or worsted weight wool(worsted will be a little larger, so adjust your needle size if needed), I used a hand dyed from Your Daily Fiber in Ft. Collins, Colorado
Size US6 dpns, I imagine that if you like to use a circular instead, you can do that, I just prefer my dpns
Stitch holder or scrap yarn to use to hold thumb gusset stitches

YO: Yarn over
K2TOG: Knit 2 together
PM: Place marker
SM: Slip marker
M1: Make one

Cast on 44 stitches ( pattern is in multiples of 4 so if you need to go up or down in size, be sure to do so in increments of 4) 

Work in 2x2 rib for 1 inch

Body Pattern:
Row 1:  YO, K2TOG, repeat around to end of row

Row 2:  Knit 

Repeat rows 1 &2 until piece measures 23/4 inches from beginning, ending with a knit row

Thumb Gusset:
Row1: YO, K2TOG, PM, M1, PM, *YO, K2TOG* repeat from * to * around
Row 2, Knit all stitches
Row 3: YO, K2TOG, SM, M1, K1, M1, SM, * YO, K2TOG* repeat from * to * around
Row 4: Knit all stitches
Repeat in this pattern until there are 11 stitches between the markers, on the last knit row, knit the stitches between the markers then place them on stitch holder or scrap yarn and continue to end of row.

Work body pattern until glove measures 5 inches from beginning
Knit 6 row
Bind off

Place stitches from stitch holder onto dpns and pick up and knit 5 stitches, making a total of 16 stitches
Row 1: YO, K2TOG, repeat around
Row 2: Knit
Row 3: YO, K2TOG, repeat around
Row 4: Knit
Row 5 Knit 
Bind off

Weave in all ends and enjoy

They are actually the same color from the same skein of yarn, just the difference in lighting when they were taken.  


Hello everyone, I'm sorry it's been a quite a few months since I've posted anything but it seems that life just gets in the way sometimes. 
 I've finished quite a few projects, taken up guitar lessons and started reno on my craft room, started but haven't finished, but it's together enough for my friends daughter to use as a bedroom this summer, she's 12 and I did the walls that I've started in purple.  
I've finished a hat for a friend that asked me to make her a slouch hat, and since there was plenty of the yarn that she purchased left over, I designed a pair of mitts to match the pattern of the hat ( I'll post it in a bit).  I've finished a couple of hats, done a ton of fingerless mitts in black and yellow for a friend, a dress for a 3 year old, a pair of socks, and then one sock that is a how not to knit a toe for flip flop socks. lol  I'll post the pattern for those when I get them correct. :D 
I've finished a baby set for a boy, seeing as how it seems I am going to be a grandmother around November, but we don't know yet if it's a boy or girl, just liked the color of the yarn, but you know I'm going to be doing plenty of baby things the next several months, may have to buy Christmas gifts this year, as I will be in baby mode.  :)
I'm glad to be back and hope to post much more regularly, hope you enjoy the patterns, and have as much fun knitting them as I do.
