Modification Monday: Mittens
Original Pattern: #18 Mittens
Knitter Extraordinaire: Caarin (Rav ID, adorable doggie blog)
Mods: Resized for a toddler's little hands, and modified the cuff to garter stitch. Project page with details can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: Oh my goodness, the colours. I love how Caarin matched the mittens with the contrasting mitt and cuff for each one, and the little splash of red is perfect. She didn't use the standard ribbing for the cuff that we all know and love, and instead used garter stitch, which seems so simple, but wow- big impact. And I bet they are super warm- garter stitch is so nice and thick, just perfect for keeping little wrists warm. Love these!
