Unleashed Convertible Mittens
Not familiar with convertible mittens? Well, they're fingerless gloves with a handy flip top that covers your fingertips to keep them toasty or buttons back out of the way to let you dial your phone, tap your tablet, or get a steady grip on your keys (perfect if you're cell-phone-dependent). If you've never worn these, you're in for a treat, and if you've never knit them, you're in for another. Regardless, you'll be delighted when Michelle Unleashes her informative and well-paced instructions and videos.
For those of you who are not familiar with Michelle's KALs, it is a "Mystery" Knit-Along. The pattern will be revealed in four weekly installments, starting on the first Thursday in July (July 2). Each week, the next part of the mitten pattern is revealed—thus the mystery!
The pattern and videos will be available at where you can post questions as well. You can also connect via the Knit Purl Hunter Ravelry group. Questions are typically answered daily. The video lessons along with the forums let knitters of all skill levels participate and get whatever help they need. It's like having a knitting tutor 24/7!

Note: Mitten hands may also be knit with two 24″ circular needles or one 32″ circular needle for "Magic Loop" method. See Michelle's Magic Loop Tutorial Video if you're not familiar with the technique. Michelle's own sample was knit using the Magic Loop method on 32″ Addi needles. For the thumbs, a set of four US 8 double points are recommended.
Gauge 17 stitches = 4″ on larger needles
Mysteriouser and mysteriouser …
Appropriately enough for a Mystery Knit Along, even we don't know which color Michelle knit in her own Unleashed mittens. Perhaps she is offering us a clue with these three shades that were featured—unnamed—on her KAL blog announcement post ...
What do you think?
There is no registration, simply visit Michelle's website starting on July 2nd at 9am EDT for Part 1.
Remaining clues will be released July 9th, 16th, and 23rd.
