Mittens – two at a time or one at a time.

July has been a great month for knitting – lots of items off the needles and some projects that were sitting on the naughty step have been resurrected and sorted out.  I joined a Mystery Mitten KAL in the I Make Mittens group on Ravelry and completed a pair and in between clues worked on an old wip – Mosaic mittens and also completed them.

The pair on the left were made using the two at a time method and the pair on the right one at a time.  I think there is a big difference in terms of tension and quality of knitting stitches.   The two at a time pair are quite uneven and the join is noticeable.

This month I am hoping to complete or at least start another two pairs and this time I think I will go down a needle size for the two at a time and see if this helps.  Also this month the patterns will be nowhere near as busy with only two colours in use.  This will also mean less darning in of ends always a good thing.
