The other exciting thing this week is that I have an adorable pattern in the Winter Petite Purls that just came out.
Knit in worsted weight yarn these mittens are pretty quick and seriously cute. They can be knit with long or short cuffs and with or without an i-cord string to keep them together. The best part is that they are sized all the way up for big hands too!
You can see the pattern for exact measurements and all that info. I am particularly partial to the palm patterning.
Here’s a link to the Ravelry page.
It’s a super cute and super quick hat sized all the way from baby to large. I used the yarn B picked out at Michaels, and it worked really well for this hat. It’s so soft and squishy!
So my newest pattern, Cuckoo, is in the new knitty that went up today. It might take a while to load for the next couple of days on the site.
It’s an intense colorwork mitten based on cuckoo clocks and bits and pieces of traditional mitten design. The yarn is from the Loopy Ewe Solid Series (robin’s egg and blackberry – light blue and dark purple is one of my favorite analogous color combos.) and it was a delight to work with! I am particularly in love with the palm pattern, the alternating flowers and hearts in traveling hexagons.
I did not expect to have these done so soon. I am too used to knitting mittens on tiny needles (I seriously have some on 0s right now – I swore I’d never use needles that small!) so I did not expect this pair to knit up as quick as they did.
Knit in the round using Knit Picks Wool of the Andes (I love these greens together) these are some pretty cool (warm!) mittens. With a tight ribbed cuff to keep out the wind and bold graphic skeleton graphics on the mitten, these are perfect for the fall, with Halloween right around the corner. Not only are these skeleton mittens, but instead of knuckle bones, there are some bad-ass brass knuckles. With cutesy hearts for a bit of balance of course. These mittens show who’s in charge.
Also, I am having a HALLOWEEN SALE!
