I decided to crochet a quick little pair of fingerless mitts during the AFC Championship Game. I crocheted What the Dickens Fingerless Mitts by Inkberryblue. (Thank you to Inkberryblue for putting up with my questions about her pattern.) These are crocheted using just under 1 skein of Rowan RYC Cashsoft DK in Sweet Pink. Because I used a DK wt yarn, I modified the mitts by ch 32 instead of 24 (giving me 8 shells instead of 6).
Since I have very short hands, I completed rounds 2-13 exactly as written in the pattern. I did modify the last round. Instead of crab stitch, I sc all the way around. Then I added a 15th round (because the finger opening was still a little too loose) and did 2sc, sc2tog all the way around and then fastened off. These pics are unblocked. (I'll block 'em tomorrow.) I think they turned out great! And they'll look great with my olive coat!
