This is the last piece of the baby set I test-knit for Polarbears. The dog motif is back, so sweet!
And the palm pattern is also lovely. I dreaded working these teeny tiny thumbs but they turned out to be pretty fun!
I messed up most of the tips. The first two times (on the mitten body) because I had used a centered double decrease (without thinking things through) during the last round. Ugh, these definitely look odd.
For the thumbs, I made sure to use a nice, slanted double decrease during the last round, and the results are much better. Except—with the first thumb (below, top mitten), I closed up the colors in the wrong order!
(The pattern is now available for sale on Ravelry!)
What’s next? Lots of stealth knitting to complete before the holidays.
