Since it is a Minion party, I knew I needed to make something Minion-inspired. I was going to make another pencil case like I did for a party we went to last month, but then I saw these fingerless mitts and knew they would be the perfect gift. I adapted the pattern to use 8-ply (DK weight) yarn and a size G crochet hook, but otherwise I followed it as written. The result was the perfect size for a pre-schooler!
I'm so pleased with the way they turned out. Here they are, modelled by Desmond...
If I make them again, I will make the cuff in a rib stitch so they are easier for little hands to put on.
In a couple of weeks, Vincent is going to another party - this one is at the local bowling alley. Vincent helped me pick out a pattern from Rebecca Danger's The Big Book of Knitted Monsters. The one he selected, Tony - the toy-box monster, looks remarkably like a bowling ball!
I hope that both boys will like their handmade toys!
