Technically these are based on the Peekaboo Mittens. I used a different thumb gore and decreases for the tip and decided to do a one-row buttonhole for the finger opening and the cuff is a twisted rib (p2, k2tbl). I guess you could say that the Peekaboo mittens inspired me, but I used a regular old mitten pattern. I do like them and wear them, but I think if I were to make another pair I’d go back to convertible mittens. The one-row buttonhold is really sturdy and has stood-up well to me poking my fingers through. My only real complaint is that the Lamb’s Pride pills like crazy! Otherwise it’s really soft, lightweight and warm. Check out these pictures:
I think these earn me the MacGyver badge baby! I got some small hair ties for KT that came in all kinds of colors so I stole a couple to keep in my knitting kit. The twist tie is like the ones that come on kids’ toys or electronics; they have a plastic coating instead of paper so it’s perfect for threading through stitches. I totally recommend keeping one in your knitting kit for emergency stitch holding.
