Brick and Mortar, Swatching

Brick and Mortar in DK

I decided to try making the Brick and Mortar mitts, knit version, in DK weight yarn. So far, so good.

Less stitches and rows to get the same size finished piece. It goes faster and they will be a bit thicker than the ones made with fingering weight yarn.

I chose to do just two colors this time and have less ends to deal with.

The way the Brick and Mortar mitt patterns are written is almost recipe like. A really good recipe with lots of guidance so you can use any yarn you want. You have to be willing to swatch though.

This is one of those pieces where the item could be the swatch. Take notes! Without notes of yarn weight, hook or needle size,number of stitches and things like that, swatching doesn’t do any good.

I will make the Brick and Mitts free when you use the code “swatch it” when they’re released in March and it’ll be good through the end of May 2023.

Happy making!
