“Smitten” – mitten for holding hands

Do you like to hold your sweetie’s hand, but your fingers go numb after just two blocks? Knit a Smitten for Valentine’s Day with Julie Weisenberger’s free pattern. For bonus holiday applicability, it looks like a heart when knit in red. Make two regular mittens to go with it, or just put your free hands in your pockets. This reminds me of my “hand-shaking glove:”

    I’m checking out make less and less every day…

    I agree with evanlivingston…what does this have to do with making anything?

    I thought this was a nice idea and if I could knit then would consider giving it as a gift to two certain people.

    The smitten has a knitting pattern and even if it didn’t then it is still a good idea that somebody with the skills could make their own version of.

    Cool idea…if only it hadn’t already been done at least twice…


    (Nice try, though)

    What Evan said. I spend more time marking Make posts as read in my feed list than I do reading them. Also, putting your hands in each other’s pockets is more fun.
