Well this week was decidedly cold and wet here in the UK. We spent much of the week peeling warm layers on and off, relearning how to work our central heating thermostats and grabbing plenty of warming brews! Here's a round up of some of our favourite fingerless mitt patterns that call for Fyberspates yarn- get knitting!
by Liz Corke. Originally worked up in Rural Charm by Fyberspates, we
think Vivacious or Scrumptious 4ply would be the perfect substitute. The
mitts are super stretchy due to the twisted rib and will fit most teens
and women and it’s easy to adjust the size. The twisted rib means they
will fit with plenty of negative ease. If you want to make the gloves a
different size, you can simply add or remove extra ribbing from the
Leighton House Handwarmers
are incredible by Ella Austin and call for jewel tones of Scrumptious
Lace. Ella's patterns are always beautifully presented and with easy to
follow instructions, this colourwork would be as fun to knit as it would
be to wear!
Sherbet Mitts by Ysolda Teague feature in the Saturday Treat
collection, an exclusive collaboration with Fyberspates. This pattern
takes advantage of the crisp stitch definition of Scrumptious 4ply and
the light reflecting silk emphasises the strong relief effect and
different textures between the sections worked in reverse stockinette
and garter stitch.
are the perfect next step to learning a few more stitches and
completing a project to wear! Knit flat before blocking and seaming,
these mittens combine simple stitches and scrumptious yarn to keep hands
warm while still leaving fingers free to wiggle! This pattern calls for
just a single skein of Scrumptious DK/Worsted.
The Dragonscale Gloves
by Rachel Barlow contain the notes, "the palm is made using a flatter
stitch so that the scales won’t get in the way when typing or hugging
hot chocolate mugs"- a girl of our own hearts!
Leave These To Me another fab fingerless mitt pattern) and a pair of Raymi from one 100g skein of Vivacious 4ply, and they’re on the same size needles too. This way you get two different projects to keep you entertained while you’re away, packed in the space for one project. It’s a fantastic alternative to one pair of vacation socks, don’t you think?
Whatever you decide, we hope your hands are snuggly and your days filled with crunchy leaves and warming drinks. More next week!
