Last year I was looking for a crocheted pattern for Santa Mitts and I came across this knitted one. I didn't make them last year because a friend was able to find the pattern I was looking for and because I found the loopy beards difficult at first (I knit continental style and there was some translation that was needed). So it became a summer project and I plan to finish 4 pairs for the church bazaar. Here's a pic of the first two pairs. The other two pairs just need eyes, pompoms and final stitching.

The discussion last year was at:
http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/588158/

and the knitted pattern is found at:

For those of you who are thinking of trying these, I thought I would experiment next time with some loopy yarn used one strand with one strand of worsted weight for the beard. It should give me a fuzzy beard w/o the fussy loops.

Just thought I would show you what this year's version looks like. I used some white eyelash yarn along with a strand of worsted weight for the beard. Also did it backwards so the purl side is facing out as it was fluffier on that side.

Have finished the 2010 mittens. It's been a challenge finding nice eyelash yarn this year. You can tell the one made with new yarn - looks like his beard is having a bad hair day.

I'm sure it is posted somewhere, but can you tell me where I can find the pattern for the crocheted ones? I never could seem to learn to knit...

The crocheted ones are at: http://www.fortunecity.com/victorian/jacobean/141/santamittens.html - I just checked and they are still there. I think the pattern for the knitted ones has been taken down.

I found the crocheted ones actually easier at first, but they won't fit the kids as long as there isn't as much give to them.
