Mitten Ornament

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®


20 sts + 28 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in St st (k on right side, p on wrong side). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Mitten Ornament Reviewed by Lynette Cameron on 2013-09-16 *****
Love this pattern and the stocking. I've made many for family and friends to add to holiday packages. I've also linked them together to make a really cute garland!
