Hat and Mitten Kick

It happens to all knitters/crocheters. We find a pattern that is easy and fast so we make them over and over again. I made two of Yarnsticks Kristina's free Earflap Hat pattern.

This size will fit a toddler and I made it out of Lion Brand wool-ease Chunky.


This one is made of Filatura Di Crosa Baby Zarella perfect for a baby.


I then found this free pattern Buggy Mitts from Morehouse Farm Merino Knits.
They aren't buggy but the next pair I make will be very Buggy.


I bought the yarn at Stix-n-Stitches and I love it!


I just finished a pair of mittens from a Classic Elite free pattern.


They were made of Cascade Pastaza. They are very soft, warm and easy to make.

The mittens and hats are adorable. I especially like the pink ones. I have some Pastaza in my stash. You have given me an idea to knit mittens with it. They look nice and warm

So pretty! Love the colors. I've never made mittens before, but they look like such fun. I'll have to give it a try this winter. Thanks for the comment about our wedding date! I was wrong and it's not the Friday before Thanksgiving, so the honeymoon will be postponed a week. That's Ok, though!

You are on a roll with the hats, mitten and gloves. Everything looks awesome. I have started a pair of mittens and yes, I am knitting on 4 needles. I needed the support and pep talk from my teacher that I could do it. I am still on the beginning, the ribbing...keep your fingers crossed I can go further. You are such an inspiration and a wonderful teacher. :-)

I have been wanting to make mittens with Cascade Pastaza but haven't found a pattern I like until I saw your mittens. I went to Classic Elite's site but couldn't find the pattern. Would you mind posting it?? It would be greatly appreciated it.
