While I was in the hospital staying with my Mother I finished up a couple of those (that were not that hard to make) For my 25 Days Of Christmas,
I would love to share the patterns with all of you today and hope that it might inspire you to pick up your needles and whip up one of those last minute Christmas gifts for the one who you have been puttering over what you will buy them.
Use: approx 100 yds of bulky handspun
Using 9 mm dps CO 20 sts
R1 Knit, R2 Purl, Knit next 10 Rows
R1: K1, inc1, K1, inc1, knit to end of row
R3: knit 19 sts put last three sts of round on a sts holder.
R4: add first 3 sts to sts holder, co 1 st (create a new st by looping yarn around the working needle), knit to end of round.
Knit 16 rows
Next row: K2 tog, repeat to end. Cut yarn and weave tail through remaining sts.
Among three needles pick up 6 sts from st holder and 3 more along body of mitt.
Knit 6 rounds.
Next round, K2tog, repeat to end. Draw tail end of yarn through remaining sts to close top of thumb. Darn in ends.
Note: By virtue of the fact that our yarns are spun individually, by hand, each skein’s yardage will vary slightly. With one skein of Hand spun slub you have just enough yarn to finish this project. The mitts are a women’s size small/medium. If you need a larger size or are unsure about knitting right to the end of your skein fingerless mitts are a great alternative
These Mittens are super warm!!!! I have made so many pairs over the last few years.
Next is a weekender Scarf
This scarf is super beautiful and I must admit it is the first one I have made. I almost decided to keep it for myself.
1 skein Hand Alpaca. Merino. Cashmere blend
you'll need approx 200m of yarn.
