Piggy Mittens, FO.





Yarn: Peruvian Highland Wool from elann in assorted partial skeins (read: I went nuts with colour)
Needles: Clover Takumi Bamboo dpns, US 5
Pattern: Piggy Mittens, by me, SpillyJane (pattern available soon!)
Started: 4 September 2007
Finished: 9 September 2007

Notes: My second pair of Piggy Mittens, and the first to be properly photographed before they leave my clutches! What started out as a quick little project for a special little guy turned into a veritable ends-travaganza once all the colour changes got a bit...silly. I didn't mind too much, as my Peruvian Highland Wool stash is in need of a use-up and a replenishin' anyway. I am really pleased to report that they did not end up looking girly as i had initially feared.

Fun Fact: I'm going to be offering this pattern in both women's and children's sizes for your knitting pleasure. It's too good (and too cute!) of a stash-buster to keep it all to myself! There's going to be a lot of free pattern action around here this week...

ETA: Would you like to add the Piggy Mittens to your Ravelry queue? The link is right here:

I don't wanna have an iguana, I don't care for a grizzly bear. A rhinoceros just ain't the thing for us, no, I just want to have a pig.

I can't find the rest of the lyrics... Eric Nagler seems to have enforced his copyrights.

I love his little snout!

Very very cute! I just might have to make those for my little cousins (two of my cousins recently adopted kids from China who I've never met but I'd bet they would like piggy mittens!).

Oh God, June + pig mittens = ultimate cute!


(I kept typing pug mittens there... that would be cute, but not AS cute)

Question:
Did you chain stitch the snout after you made the mitten? I just love them!
