Here is my pretty bulky yarn turned into mitts. Since I winged it with the pattern, here is the Made Up Mitts Pattern:
CO 24 st on dpn - join in the round
k 3 rows m1 by knitting the front and back of the same stitch three times
k 4 more rows ( a total of thirteen rows or 2 1/2")
k2tog first and last stitch of the next row
turn work p row
turn work k row (do this two more times for a total of 6 rows, making sure that the RS stays the RS)
Do not turn work again at the beginning of the next row join the round again and start by m1 (knit front and back of same stitch) k row to last stitch m1 - back to 27 sts. Knit 5 more rounds (about an inch). Begin rib k2, p1 for 9 rows (about 2") and bind off loosely.
Easy, fast and fun!
