Endpaper Mitts

Pattern: Endpaper Mitts by Eunny Jang (Rav link)
Yarn: Knit Picks Palette (colours Ash and Black, about half a skein each)
Needle: Knit Picks Circs, size 0 (2.00mm) for ribbing and size 4 (3.5mm) for colourwork.
Size: Medium
Made for: Sister

1. Eliminated the purl stitch seam, which I didn't like the look of. But it turns out that even without it the sides of the mitt still look a little messy, so maybe next time I would add the purl stitch back in.

A closer look at the seam (which is also a bit puckered)

2. I didn't knit the "set-up" rows and I used a long tail cast on instead of the tubular cast on but still used the suggested tubular (kitchener) cast off.

3. Ribbing, I worked 10 rows of rib for the cuff instead of the suggested 16 (?).

I really enjoyed knitting these, they worked up very quickly and I think they turned out quite nicely.
They were gifted to my sister today, and she loves them. Yes!

She was rather fond of the Selbuvotter mittens I knit, but since I know she really likes fingerless gloves I decided to go for the Endpaper Mitts instead of a full mitten pattern.

As a side note, I finally found a pattern for the Cherry Tree sock yarn, so I'll have more on that (with a photo) later. :)

Cool! Can't wait to see the pattern for the sock yarn.

The Endpaper mitts look lovely. Your sister is very lucky to be receiving them :)
