I’m eventually getting round to adding a free mitt pattern to go with this cowl. (The main problem was getting decent photos so forgive the ones I’ve managed to get!)
I also knit a pair for the Wee Man as he hates wearing gloves with fingers (he can never get his fingers into the right bit) but he can put these on easily and he loves them.
NB: these mitts are designed to be roomy and slouchy, this size fits my medium (7.5″ round the knuckles) hand with a bit of room but they don’t fall off. If you have smaller hands you may want to reduce the stitch count a bit.
Here’s how to do it:
You’ll need 2 X 50g balls (one of each colour) of Sublime Extra Fine Merino DK or any DK yarn to get tension/gauge of 13sts and 29 rows to 10cm.
I’m having a knitting problem. Too many projects…too little time. This isn’t a new problem but I don’t think I’ve ever had so many designs on the go before.
I’ve almost finished a couple of simple wee ones…
This is a headband – only problem – I might have to find a neater way to do the edges. It looks fine when it’s on a head but a bit wavy when off…
Here is my latest wrist warmer design – also almost done:
There were two reasons this design was left for a bit – I ran out of one of the colours and couldn’t find my tapestry needle for weaving in the ends!
Next is a design for a spring/summer top so I’ve got a bit of time to finish that:
I’m almost done with a more wintery top in yummy chunky undyed wool:
I’ve either got to finish it pronto or keep it on the backburner until Autumn. This one was left for a bit because I needed more wool for it and it wasn’t cheap…
And last but most importantly I’ve started designing something specially for my Mum who is very unwell at the moment. I’m hoping to finish it soon and sell the pattern through Just Giving to raise money for Cancer Research UK. It’s a scarf/shawl knit on the bias:
Hopefully I can finish at least a couple of these over the weekend and I won’t feel like I’ve got quite so many balls (of wool) in the air!
Fingerless Mitts. My favourite. I can’t help going back to them again and again.
I have some new ones and I think these might be my favourite ones yet…
If you like them and you can knit you can download the pattern for free from my Ravelry store, or if you don’t knit (why not??!) you can always ask me to knit them for you in my Etsy or Folksy shops. I canna do that for free though I’m afraid…
I got a lovely bundle of new wool from the postie today so I’m off to fondle it!
