So I’ve taken a venture into the realm of knitting starting with a gorgeous infinity scarf just using the knit stitch, a matching hat using a seed stitch and then flip top mittens.
Found some beautiful sparkly teal yarn, the brand Caron Simply Soft Party in Teal Sparkle. I used the Lion Brand free pattern here.
I made a few changes such as shortening the cuff from 3″ to 2.5″ and making the flip top about an inch longer since my fingers are long.
I may try making this pair again using only the size 6 needles to make the rest of the mitten and thumb tighter, they were a little loose for my preference. Overall happy with how they turned out, :).
Here are a few photos of the process of making the first one, lots of initial try-ons!
