I would have been done much sooner, but started on the Koolhaas pattern when I had the second mitt completely knit minus the thumb and grafting. I was too excited to get started and I really should have finished the mitts first.
This was a fun project. You knit up two mitts that are stuck together at the wrist and then turn one in so they are double sided and there are no seams. The pattern has an adorable flower embroidered on the solid side. Mine has nothing because these are going to be for a guy. I intend to make an accompanying girl's pair with the flower.
The crochet cast on was a new technique for me and the tip for using a contrasting color really makes it easier later on when you take the cast on stitches out in order to pick up stitches for the other side of the glove.
This is the grafting which is the final step to join and finish the top edges of the glove.
