Chunky Paws

When Mr T was tiny (and before I was really back into the knitting zone!) a friend sold me a lovely pair of thick chunky fingerless mittens for him.  He has worn them for years.  I was looking at my collection of chunky yarns left over from bunny hats and decided to have a go and knit a pair.  The pair I was inspired by was knitted in the flat but being less than keen on purling I had a go at a pair in the round.  Mr T was my "mannequin man" and decided he liked them but as he does have enough mittens I have listed them for sale on Etsy.  They fitted nicely and look a bit more boyish in the thicker yarn so I am planning to make up other colour sizes over the summer ready for autumn time.
