Goldfish Mittens

I've managed a little knitting of late.....it's been the sort of weather for curling up at home....

I have loved this pattern by Amy Christoffers via Ravelry for a while and finally got round to knitting it - Goldfish Mittens. They're made with 4 ply and 3mm needles. I had the orange in my stash but had to buy the yellow. There should hopefully be enough yarn left to knit another pair.



The cuff was a little confusing at first but easy once you understood the pattern. Of course there is no quality control in my mittens, so the second one was, as usual, slightly larger.....


A friend forgot to bring her knitting to knitting group the other week so kindly knitted up an i-cord for these mittens - in the yellow - which I still need to attach. I'll post another photo once I have.

Very cute! I'm assuming the thumb is on the underside?

Hi Anna
Yes the thumbs are on one side - if you look closely in the top picture you can see the thumb on the bottom mitten.

Is there a written pattern for these?
