Harker’s Mitts

I debated with myself about posting this pattern.

But then I decided that what annoys me about the pattern isn’t the pattern. It’s me. The entire time I’ve been knitting, I’ve never knit anything that comes in a pair where each one comes out the same length. Every single flipping time it comes out that my row gauge on the second one tightens up just enough that I notice it.

Oh well.

These are a really fast knit, and they do come out cute. They knit up to be an adult’s large, and are really squishy in this yarn.
