I found a model at my last Machine Knitting Meeting. One of the gals brought her granddaughter's. One was about 6 and the mitten fit her perfectly. This was knit with some purple yarn I bought at Fig Tree Alley. It is a gorgeous purple acrylic sold for $5 a cone. I bought it mainly to use for my prototypes. My experiments on my knitting machines. Each time I make something though I think I should save it for something real. It's such a gorgeous color.
I made this mitten on my Studio 700 standard gauge knitting machine. The cuff is a mock rib. At the time of this project I was at my knitting machine meeting and did not have a ribber. I also did not know how to use the ribber I had at home. The mock rib looks nice, but doesn't have the stretch of a real rib.
I was really quite amazed as I made this mitten in about 25 minutes. It took me about 1 hour to sew up the seams.
I made the size for a toddler, but the mitten nearly fits me. It fit my 6 year old model perfectly.
3 days after I made this mitten I learned how to use my ribber. I'm no expert, but I do know how to make 1X1 ribbing. I made an adult size mitten with 1X1 ribbing. Pictures to follow.
