Me and boyfriend we are huge fans of Game of Thrones and while waiting for the new episodes we have been re-watching all the seven seasons. At the same time I have also been listening to The Farseer Trilogy audiobooks by Robin Hobb.
So a lot of fantasy and dragons while I have been working on these SMAUG mittens. The pattern is made by JennyPenny and is available in Ravelry. Here is the link to the pattern: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/smaug-mittens
I decided on a different cuff for these than in the original design so that the mittens go nicely under the sleeves of a jacket. The fingering weight yarn I used for these is Socki Fine from Adlibris. In my opinion the green color (goes by the name Green Parakeet, B089) is perfect for this pattern.
I played with the thought of making the eyes of the second mitten blue in reference to the dragon the Night’s King awakened but ended up making both of them in yellow and orange.
I never got a chance to take a picture of the finished mittens since my boyfriend started using them immediately and has been making his friends envy ever since 😀
I would like to make myself a pair of socks with this same pattern one day, maybe in red or black and white.
