Hot on the heels of my first pattern release, I’ve now released my Vanilla Flip Mitts pattern on Ravelry.
These fingerless mittens are knit with fingering weight yarn and include folding cuffs, fingers and thumbs so you can fold them up or down depending on the weather or if you need access to your fingers.
The pattern includes three unisex adult sizes as well as visual tutorials for the Old Norwegian cast on, Backwards loop cast on, and picking up stitches for the thumb.
You can also customise the length of the various sections if you want shorter or longer cuffs making this a very flexible pattern that you can use over and over again to create perfect mitts for you and those you love to knit for.
The year is buzzing along and one of my goals this year (let’s not mention the intention to write two blog posts a month, shall we?) was to publish my first pattern on Ravelry and I’m excited to say that I’ve done it!
Introducing my Windshield hat pattern:
This is a gently slouchy hat with diamond motifs knit from the top down with a folded brim. It has a few tricky techniques in it to make for an interesting project!
In celebration of releasing my first pattern, Windshield is currently free on Ravelry. I hope you enjoy it!
