Pattern: Me Naiset magazine from the 70s
Yarn: 7 veljestä by Novita
I wanted to try knitting some mittens and since I was visiting my parents, I decided to peruse my mother's stash of old women's magazines. I found a series of basic patterns for socks and mittens and tried this one. Very good and simple pattern, which I will certainly use again.
The only issue I had was the thumbs. As you can see, they are different sizes. The one on the right was done according to the instructions and ended up being almost a centimeter too long. I guess either the people in the Seventies had longer thumbs or my daughter has unusually short thumbs. Or the pattern is just wrong! I did not bother fixing the right mitten, but I made an improved left mitten.
