FO: Monster Paws

My green monster hat needed some matching mitts…

So I made myself some monster paws! I feel like this shade of green was meant to be the color of a muppet. LOL

The pattern is Raw Honey and I’ve made them before a long time ago in a super bright pink and thought why not make them in a bright green this time? I prefer fingerless gloves to mittens most of the time because I’m forever walking a dog and need to be able to grab poop bags. I know, the reality isn’t pretty.

But at least my mitts are pretty. Also I originally made the green hat to match my plaid coat and then when I pulled out my heavy winter coat I realized the green is the same color I picked for my monogram!

I don’t normally personalize all my things but I bought this coat from Lands End last year at the end of the winter and it was so inexpensive I thought why not add my initials? Also this is the warmest coat, I wish it was full length. I’ve still got almost a full skein left of the Malabrigo worsted I used for the hat and mitts, so what should I make as the last accessory? Any suggestions for a quick cowl that just uses one skein?

  1. Lovely shade of limone 🍋 green and I absolutely love your nail 🥝 polish ! 😉
    Cowls usually don’t use more than one skein, so you can always improvise. I’d make a cowl to either match or complement the stitches you have already used for the hat & the mitts, or any contrasting textured stitch like the diagonal fixed loop, bamboo stitch, or star-stitch and the like.

  2. Texture and color – just perfection! I am not a very avid accessory knitter, so nothing comes to my mind… Usually I leave leftovers in my yarn basket and wait for the perfect pattern match 🙂

    1. I go through phases. It’s easy to knit smaller accessories when I’m working on projects that are too bulky to carry around.
