Aviatirx and Mittens

Here is a cute little hat and mittens I made for Andrew after we walked home from Preschool and when we got home his hands and ears were frozen!!

The Hat pattern is a freebie on Ravelry and is easy as anything, knit on straight needles. It uses short rows and wraps which give it those bumps you can see.

I made it with Moda Vera Cup Cake which is Acrylic/Nylon and very soft to touch.

The Mittens are also a free pattern on Ravelry. They are called "Easy On Mittens". The thumb is extra wide so they are easy to get on. Another easy pattern - meant to be worked on Double pointed needles - but i did it on straight needles and sewed it up.

Very happy with it!
