Here are the finished Broad Street Mittens.... glittens!
the Boyfriend is getting his Christmas present a little early- as long as I get to rewrap them for Christmas morning. :D
You might notice that the mitten part looks different from the pattern... Instead of doing a pointer mitten top with a loop on top, I did a common sock-decrease pattern (decrease 4 every other row, grouped on the ends.) I also crochetd loops to lie flat, rather than stick up on top, so they wouldn't snag on things, and I reinforced the loops by making half-hitches on the loops to make it stronger. Finally, I sewed down about 1/2 of the ribbing on the mitten, and it flips back great.
And of course, the shamrock buttons just rock!
