chunky cove mitts

When I published my Ripple Wave Fingerless Mitt pattern a few years ago, a friend of mine asked if I could adapt it to a heavier yarn. Sure, I said. No problem. And then I kind of forgot about it until a few months ago when I was wanting to knit up some finished mitts for Room6 before Christmas. With no time to do fingering weight mitts, but what about bulky yarn and hey, I have practically a yarn shop of bulky yarn right now in my craft studio.

I quickly dyed up some tonal yarn in my trusty crock pot, got my Ripple Wave pattern out and played around with it and came up with these Chunky Cove Mitts.

It has a similar design: wide cuff, a pattern of increases and decreases, and a wide cuff at the top to be worn up or folded down. It has half the number of stitches as the Ripple Waves and once I got the pattern figured out, it was knit in about 2 hours’ time. That is very, very satisfying!

So here is the pattern for sale on Ravelry.

Chunky Cove Mitts.

It is knit with approximately 110-130 yards of bulky-weight yarn on size 10US (6mm) needles.

As always, I have proofed, had it test knit, proofed again and again, but if there is an error or something that isn’t clear, please let me know!
