Cashmere Convertible Mittens: Evidence of Progress

cashmere_glitten1.JPG cashmere_glitten2.JPG

Here's the progress on a modified version of the Convertible Mitten I made for Clayton made with amazing School Products 100% cashmere (from what I can tell this yarn is made of 20 2-ply strands. I dunno what this means in terms of ply except to say that it is ridiculously cushy-rific). This pair's for me, so I've sized it down considerably and added a few other changes. I think it's different enough from the Patons pattern that I may post the entire pattern here when it's done. Here are the main changes:

(1) thumb, palm, and flap are sized down considerably
(2) fingers are done in stockinette rather than ribbing
(3) flap is differently constructed to curve rather than taper
(4) button closure versus velcro

I'm off to be a good girl by studying for my Evidence exam. Here's a sample of what we're learning from Friday's New York Times.

Thanks for the article! I'm studying Evidence right now, too. I can impress my prof with it, too!

And I'd love it if you could post the pattern. I want to make convertible mittens for myself and my sweetie. I don't think I'll buy the Patton's pattern based on your comments. I wish the Broad Street pattern in Knitty had a man's size, too.

oooh the cashmere looks totally yummy. i altered the patons pattern, too. luckily my friend has huge hands so i didn't downsize but i did make the fingers in stockingnet, put on a button instead of velcro, and made a rounded mitten top. you and my friend can be mitten twins! they look like they're gonna be super squooshy and warm. :)

lisa, dig that crawford v. washington! good luck with your evidence. right now i'm bashing my head in trying to figure out verbal objects and stuff. argh!

a while ago i ran across detailed instructions for making the broad street mittens for a guy somewhere online and now i can't for the life of me find it. I'd say, though, that if they're for a guy a worsted-weight version would be just as good and faster, too. i'll post it soonly...
