“This is the oatmeal of mittens.” – Yarn Harlot
Thrummed Mittens
Pattern: Yarn Harlot
Yarn: Filatura Di Crosa Antarctic Wool Superwash, 2 balls plus a bit of a 3rd for thumbs
Fiber: Superfine Merino from The Yarn Tree, approx 1 oz.
Needles: Brittany 3.25 mm & Takumi bamboo 4.25mm
Notes: knit the thumbs following the pattern for thrummed mittens in the Winter issue of Interweave Knits
I’ve been wanting to knit a pair of these mittens ever since seeing Veronique‘s thrums. The project also fit a few requirements I had in mind when the desire to start something new hit Saturday morning. Small, practical, warm, uses yarn (and roving!) from stash, knit in stockinette stitch. Okay, it could have been anything…thrummed hat, thrummed socks… 🙂 I imagine I’ll get lots of use out of these and they were a blast to knit. I can’t help but laugh when I look at them –neat little stitches on the outside and crazy wooly roving on the inside!

  1. I’m glad I inspired you to make these mittens! Now, I hope you’ve inspired me to make the second one… I have second mitten syndrome 😦

  2. Wow – those look incredibly warm and plush! I would have a hard time getting at my MetroCard in my wallet in those, though! Very cute!

  3. Mmmmm – how incredibly toasty!! I have to make myself a pair!

  4. oh boy! those are some warm mittens for sure!

  5. Lovely thrums! Aren’t they so warm and fuzzy? Now I’m just waiting for a really cold day to wear mine–no that I’m complaining about the nice weather! But yours are so pretty. 🙂

  6. Oooh. Something squooshy this way comes. You’re going to push me over the edge on this pattern…
