I'm looking forward to knitting the Unleashed Mittens. What do they look like? We don't know! The Unleashed Mittens are the latest KAL (Knit A-Long) project from Michelle Hunter.
We do know that the Unleashed Mittens are convertible mittens. Not familiar with convertible mittens? Well, they're fingerless mitts with a handy flip top that covers your fingertips to keep them toasty or buttons back out of the way to let you tap on your tablet, get a grip on your keys, or dial your phone (perfect if you're cell-phone-dependent). If you've never worn these, you're in for a treat, and if you've never knit them, you're in for another. Regardless, you'll be delighted when Michelle unleashes her informative and well-paced instructions and videos.

Materials you'll need . . . .
The first step is to pick your yarn - which may be the most difficult part of the project. Michelle has knit the Unleashed Mittens in HiKoo's Simpliworsted, a squishy soft machine washable wool blend - and there are over 50 colors to choose from!
Bonus: We've got every color of Simpliworsted on sale at 20% off!
The Unleashed Mittens pattern will feature two sizes, children (approx. 4-6 years old) and adult. You'll need one skein of Simpliworsted for the child size and two for the adult.

- Two buttons 1/2 - 3/4" in diameter.
- Size US 8 [5.00 mm] and US 6 [4.00 mm] double-pointed needles or sizes needed to obtain gauge in Stockinette stitch on larger needles.
And you're ready to get unleashed!
Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
