♥14 ♥ Christmas gift along - December

Last year, I got a mitten book from my husbands family. I made two pair of mittens for my nieces during the holidays, and this year the grown ups are getting theirs. We usually don't give each other gifts, but exeptions are allowed. Two of the pairs I have shown before. And here is the one for my BIL

Well, the pattern description is for a woman size. Then it says to go up one needle size for a man, use Hifa 3 in stead of Hifa 2, and make them longer if necessary.

I used the Hifa 2 that I won last year. And needles 3,5 mm (US 4). My gauge was then 26/10 cm, and I think they're wide enough. I added one pattern repeat of the palm pattern, hoping they will be long enough. 


I also omitted one stitch from the palm pattern. Again, the pattern was not symmetric, and I don't see why, it was so simple just to omit one stitch. But then I might be a symmetry freak. I made the thumb 2 sts wider.

Remember there is still time to join my Give away!

Min första kommentar här handlade om din utlottning Men jag lämnade kommentar under den istället. Egentligen ville jag här uttrycka min beundran för de här vantarna också. Har kikat några gånger på omslaget till Sundbös bok. Är den att rekommendera?

Det er en flott bok med fine bilder og mange gamle mønstre og vottediagrammer. Så boka er absolutt å anbefale! Men det er ikke en bok som i detalj forklarer hvordan man strikker votter, og det er litt lite detaljer i oppskriftene med hensyn til størrelser mm, men er man vant til å strikke votter er det ikke noe problem.

Tack, då ska jag nog önska mig den.
