A few weeks ago, it was colder than a witches' tit here in NYC. As such, I realized my awesome nummy Fetching fingerless gloves weren't gonna cut it... I needed a set of full mittens.

Ravelry has a lot (I mean, a LOT) of knitted mitten patterns.... overwhelming ain't even the word. So I tried narrowing down the results to adult fit, and started lurking. I found the above pattern in the midst of this search... and thought, wait, didn't I see a similar glove pattern for free somewhere (I thought it was Knitty...)?

Well, a search for free thrummed mitten patterns turned up 27 patterns! Lookit that.
This one is my favorite :) It looks exactly like the one above! Can you believe it??
The only positive thing I will say about the above pattern is they seem to provide some customization options.
It still doesn't justify the $7 price tag.
The houndstooth pattern can be easily adjusted to thrums, like this pattern incorporated it into some colorwork. Thrumming as a concept isn't hard, and I really don't think it's nice or fair to charge for something that's not only simple to do, but something you can find numerous FREE tutorials for on the web.
