A while ago I bought some King Cole Tinsel Chunky sparkly eyelash yarn and it has sat in my stash ever since. The colour is called Frozen and actually it was ordered with the intention of making some Frozen/Elsa themed knitting and craft projects.
To cut a long story short, it just didn’t happen and the yarn has sat in my stash ever since arrived.
Until last night, when I used a little bit of it to make these fun little hand warmers. Actually, I don’t like knitting with eyelash yarn and I have no idea what will happen to the rest of the yarn.
If you have little girl who likes Frozen, and some odds and ends of eyelash yarn, you may wish to whip up this super fast knitting project for her.
They are knit with chunky yarn on 5.5mm needles. You could use two strands of double knitting (8 ply) yarn held together if you don’t have any chunky yarn.
I paired the tinsel chunky with Hayfield Baby Chunky to make these mitts.
Let It Go Hand Warmer Mitts Knitting Pattern
Small amounts of chunky yarn in plain and eyelash.
Kfb – knit into front and back of stitch to increase by 1.
K – knit.
On 5.5mm needles and with plain yarn, cast on 3 stitches.
Work the following rows to increase;
Kfb, k1, kfb (5)
Kfb, k3, kfb (7)
Kfb, k5, kfb (9)
Kfb, k7, kfb (11)
Kfb, k9, kfb (13)
Now knit (working garter stitch) every row for 6 rows.
Now cast on 7 stitches at the beginning of the next row (20 stitches in total).
Continue to work in garter stitch for 21 rows more.
Cut yarn, leaving a long enough yarn tail to sew up the seam.
Add in the eyelash yarn and garter stitch 8 rows. Cast off in knit.
Sew up the seam and sew in all ends.
If wanted, you can add a button or bow to decorate the mitts.
A snowflake button would look very cute and would surely be loved by any Frozen or Elsa fan.
