I finished the Alphamitts for Mr. Liu’s nephew. They turned out well, except for this:
How is it that I used exactly the same yarn, exactly the same needles and knit exactly the same number of rounds and the mittens came out to be two completely different sizes?!? How does that even work?
So what I do is pick up the same yarn, needles and pattern and knit a third mitten and pray it doesn’t turn out to be some crazy different size. I managed to get lucky:
I got a mitten that matched the bigger of the two mittens. So now I have a pair and a too small spare. I want to knit another to match the little guy, but I’m not quite sure how it happened, so I’m not certain it’s a reproducible result. Maybe if I drop a needle size? What do you think?
