I adapted a pattern which used a slip stitch for the entire mitt. Instead, I worked 4 rows of slip stitch for a cuff and then changed to a double stitch. I used an I hook or 9, also called 5.5mm and thick blanket yarn by Bernat. These are my first full mitts and were so easy and made up quickly. basic free pattern was found on ravelery...more
