OH I am glad this pattern is still here

I forgot about it and the fall is here and fingers are cold. I need to knit a pair or 2. THanks again Jean.
I hope I did not miss a 2009 mystery knit along :(

Thanks Jean

This has been a great project and I've really enjoyed seeing other people's finished objects. I still have half a mitten to go (I'm a slow knitter), but I do intend to make many more pairs from this pattern. I'm going to substitute a plain cable for the snowman on some of them so as not to offend any religious beliefs. Thanks so much Jean for sharing this pattern with us. I can't wait for the next project.

Pattern is ready

The pattern for both "small" and "medium" sizes is ready. Please let me know if you find any errors. Thanks for participating (and I have a sweater pattern in the works for later in the summer!)

Finally ...

I have my mittens done, and ready to share. Great little pattern, Jean! Thanks so much for sharing with us - and for giving me an incentive to start mittin knittin! These will go to CIC, for their current mitten challenge. I gave them scarves, as the poor little guys don't have mouths - thought warm necks was the least that I could do.

It's here!

I received my prize today. It's gorgeous! Thanks again!

Large Snowman Pattern

The general instructions for "Large Snowman Mittens" are the same as the smaller version, with these exceptions:

Cast on 40

Work 18-22 rounds of ribbing (the photo mitten has 22...if that's too much cuff for your taste, cut it down)

After ribbing, divide the stitches 20-10-10 on the needles.
Begin the graph immediately after the ribbing (no plain stockinette rows)

Mark the thumb placement on Round 14 of the chart.
Mark 7 stitches for the thumb.

At end of graph, begin the top-of-hand decreases as for the smaller mittens.

Thumb: worked over 15 stitches. Work 14 rounds even, then decrease top of thumb as for the smaller mittens.
