I knit these mittens for myself. They are made of Caron Simply Soft and some white yarn that was gifted to me. The deer was made using duplicate stitch. I improvised the pattern.











These took a couple weeks. I kind of hated them by the end.

Nice long cuffs, great color and wonderful use of duplicate stitch!  You'll be glad you worked so hard on these when it's blustery and cold!  Nice work!

Cool gloves! I like your finger access better than the extra bulk of separate mitts, and the moose is well done!

Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

Great work. Definitely agree with Muria about the finger access - maybe mittens will be put back on my "To Knit" list. And just as an aside, LOVE the moose, but I'm strangely reminded of Swanly and Bearly (I don't think those have been spelled out since the script was written) the embroidered goat shoes that Grandfather makes for Heidi in the black and white Shirley Temple version.

Thanks all Smiley

I've read Heide. I don't think I've ever seen that movie though.

They look nice.  I love the color of blue that you used.  Cheesy

I've got a brand new blog:  *I'm one with the masses now!

*Life and adventues of an American living overseas who finds time to knit every now and then.
