Yarn: approx 91 yds (half a skein) of Universal Yarn Classic Shade Solids (70% acrylic/ 30% wool) in Eggplant.
Needle: US Size 4 and 3 circs
Pattern: Fetching by Cheryl Niamath
Knit according to the pattern until after the cabling row above the thumbs.
Rather than knitting 4 rounds in k4p1 ribbing, then binding off, I decided to make the mitts longer.
To that end, I knit 5 rounds in the k4p1 ribbing, then did another cable round. After that, I knit 3 rounds in k4p1 ribbing. Switching to a smaller needle (US size 3 circ), I decreased one stitch while establishing k1p1 ribbing. I did two rounds of that on the smaller needle, then bound off in ribbing.
As usual, I knit both mitts simultaneously, using the Magic Loop technique.
