Fezzes are cool - new pattern

“It’s a fez, I wear a fez now… Fezzes are cool”
(The Big Bang, 2010)

Flip top mitts featuring Matt Smith’s bowtie and favourite fez. This pattern idea to me in a flash and it made me laugh, so I just had to write it up - I hope you laugh too! Mitts flip towards front of hand & fasten with buttons so as not to obscure bowtie ^_^ enjoy!

L.O.V.E. I don't knit, but I might have to work up something similar in crochet!

PixelatedMushroom said...

cool :) would love to see it if you do crochet a pair!

I love these! Now I really want to make them for my sister for Christmas, but I haven't had much luck with knitting gloves and glove-like things in the past... I suppose I'll just have to try again. :)

@Etoile thanks! I hope they work for you :) the main part can get a little dull but it's worth it when you get up to the fez as it's fun to knit :)

I hope this isn't too weird (you watch Dr. Who then crochet AMAZING things for it, so probably not) but are you a Nerdfighter? The last picture, it looks a bit like you are are making the sign, but the covers are on... :D

PixelatedMushroom said...

@Sydeny hehe nope - i had to look it up to know what it was - but you're right :p It does look like the sign :)
