Prairie Mitts II

Yarn: Buffalo Gals Merino/Bison
Needle: US3
Notes: I improvised these mitts to match the ones I made in Nancy Bush's handcovering class I took at Madrona several years ago. I had a partial skein left of the yarn and used every last bit. I guesstimated how many stitches to cast on, knit until until about halfway done, cast off 8 stitches for the thumb and cast the stitches back on on the following row. Then I did a three-needle bind off to join the cast on with the last row. They fit him well and he really likes them.
