Modification Monday: Cry Me a River Mitts
Original Pattern: Kalajoki Socks
Knitter Extraordinaire: Annabel (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Using the design for the socks as a stepping stone, Annabel created these great-fitting arm warmers. Project page with great details on her mods can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: I'm always quick to say that a great sock pattern can be modified into an arm warmer pattern, but the truth is it requires a little more math than that to get a good fit through the arm and wrist. Annabel did a superb job with these mitts- they look comfortable, cozy, and great-fitting. I love the placement of the design, and the thumb gusset looks perfect. These are beautiful mitts!!
