I haven’t just been buying yarn willy-nilly — I’ve also been knitting a bit! Recently I finished another Christmas gift.
These are for a very stylish male friend, so I’m hoping they’re classic and elegant enough. The elegant mostly comes from the yarn, which is a marvelous silk and merino blend from JulieSpins. Seriously, these mitts feel so good. I’m glad I have over half a skein left so I can make some for myself!
The pattern is called Pioneer Gloves and I’d share the link but Rav is currently down so I’m afraid you’ll have to do the extra step on your own. I do think it’s a free pattern, if that helps!
Happy Friday, friends.
Those look really nice. I’m so impressed with your gift knitting!
Thank you! Surely you notice I’m choosing quick and simple patterns? 😉
I love how the thumb is worked from the wrist rather than an afterthought. I may copy you and make some of these. It’s almost fingerless gloves weather here.
These look great! The thumb increases are nicely incorporated into the design. I love it when designers do that. It also never fails to amuse me how big projects made out of ribbing can stretch. 😀
Yes! I love the thumb on this one. I wasn’t sure how it would work as I was knitting it but it’s fabulous. Might be my new favorite mitt pattern!
I’ll have to check it out!
Those really are stylish!! I love how the thumb increases look, and that is really lovely yarn 🙂
Yes! The thumb is so clever!
