Okay here is the pattern, for a women's size, medium ish... I used size 4mm (7 US) and 5mm (8 US) and chunky (which is thicker then US Chunky, so maybe US bulky) weight wool, with a gauge of about 6 stitches to an inch.  The yarn is from the UK, and it is "Peregrine Chunky", I picked it up in my LYS, the colour is Butterfly.   I used exactly 1 100g skein, unfortunately it doesn't list the yardage on the label. 

Flip top mittens, makes womens medium-ish
Using 4.5mm needles and leaving 10 inches tail, cast on 35 stitches.
Row 1 (WS) P1, (k1, p1) across.
Row 2 K1, (p1, k1) across.
Rep Rows 1-2 for approx 5 inches (if you want a turn up cuff, 2.5 inches for no turn up) , ending with RS row. Switch to 5mm. Beg with a purl row, work 7 stocking st rows.

Row 1 (RS) K17; place stitch marker); M1, k1, M1; pm; k17.
Row 2 and all WS rows P across.
Row 3 K to marker, slip marker, M1, k to last st before 2nd marker, M1, slip marker, k to end.
Rep rows 2-3 until there are 13 stitches between markers.

Main bit of the mitten:
K17 sts; remove markers and place the 13 sts on stitch holder ; k17. Carry on in Stocking stitch until piece measures approx 5.5 inches from the cuff.  End on a WS row, placing a marker between two center stitches. Bind off.   
Pick up 17 stitches from about 5/8th of an inch from the top on one side of the mitten (the side you pick up from with depend on which hand you are knitting, but for the left hand pick up from the left section and for the right side from the right part) Cast on another 17 stitches so you have 34 sts.  Carry on in stocking stitch for 2 inches (less if you have smaller hands)

Top Shaping: Row 1 (RS) *Ssk, k to within 2 sts of the central marker, k2tog; ssk, k to within last 2 sts, k2tog. rep from *, ending row with k2tog.
Row 2 P.
Rep these 2 rows 3 times 18 sts.
Next Row K2tog across.
Next Row P.
Break yarn. Using yarn needle and beginning with last stitch on needle, pull tail through remaining stitches twice, pull tightly.

Thumb Top bit:
With RS facing, return stitches from holder to 5mm needle. Join yarn and k across.
Next row P6, p2tog, p6. Work 4 more rows in Stocking stitch.
Last row K2tog along the whole row. Break yarn. Thread tail into yarn needle and back through stitches twice.
Stitch it all together!

Attatch a small loop of either icord or chain stitch or finger knitting to the top and work out where the button needs to sit in order for the flap to button down, sew on buttons!

The face is stitched on felt

I am so impreesed with your skills, knittters envy. I am pretty sure I am the slowest learner ever. But seriously you rock, and I am definately adding these to my never ending to do list. I LOVE BLOO. My daughters think I'm crazy because every time that cartoon comes on, I stop what I'm doing to watch it with them

not sure why you can't see them, everyone else can and the pics are still working... anyway here is a URL link:


thanks for all the compliments, I am not sure the pattern making was all that clever, I have knitted several pairs of mittens using various two needle patterns and this is just what I ended up with in my head as I tend to remember patterns:)

Brilliant! Sheer genius! And who doesn't love Bloo!

The mittens look EXACTLY like Bloo too! You are truly a gifted knitter and artist.

Well done!

Those are PERFECT! They look exactly like him - great work! (And I'm glad to know that I'm not the only grown-up-ish person who watches Foster's...)
