Zoo Animal Mittens
This is my second pair of mittens-the first was a practice pair before using the yarn for these. The yarn is A Blend of Zoo Animals (alpaca, wool, camel hair) by Woofer Wearables in Alaska. Lucas and Erin bought this yarn for me last Christmas. Even though I was a little nervous about using it, wanted to finish them so they would be reminded to BUY yarn for my Christmas present this year, lol!!
These mittens took 4 oz (about 200 yards) and were knit with 44 stitches on size 3.75 circs. Wasn't sure I would like making mittens.. but they are an easy, fun knit and I will be making more!!
