For nephews with May birthdays, mittens always seem a little silly. As cold as it’s been this year, they may need to wear them before fall.
Heading into the Thanksgiving season (at least here in Canada) I decided I wanted to try knitting pumpkins. A quick Ravelry search turned up a couple of patterns. I ended up trying both, and settled on a hybrid of the two, with a little inspiration on the top from a pumpkin hat.
Yarn: Remnants of Knit Picks Swish Worsted, Cascade 220 Superwash (about 35 yards of each)
Needles: Knitters Pride Marblz US 5 (3.75 mm)
I loved how these turned out. They’re a cute, quick knit for the holidays.
