A new pattern to Vide collection.
They are knitted in fingering weight yarn (Rowan fine tweed) and are made in twined stitch to make them warmer and longer lasting but if you don’t want to knit them in twined stitch you can use normal stockinette instead. The pattern is available under Patterns and on Ravelry. You can still make them as a Christmas present if you want to or perhaps a gift for yourself. This pair are to be a gift.
Me and my fiance went to Tummelisa one of my local yarn shops to bye buttons for my new OWLS, but we didn’t find any buttons. My fiance P did for the first time ask me to knit something for him, a par of mittens in Debbi bliss arn tweed, this is the mitten made after his instructions. So I think that it really is his pattern radar then mine. Pattern link
Vide collection is still a collection in the making, this far it includes Gloves, Socks and Mitts, I’m planing to include a hat probably a tam and some mittens within the next month or two. All these projects are perfect Christmas gifts if you are making for someone special.
As you can see I have knitted a few, to try out some different yarns and sizes. This far there are 3 adult sizes to choose from. To make your own pair of Simple mittens, you can find the pattern under “patterns”, its free too. The goal with the Simple patterns collection is to make a pattern that any one can make and that can qualify as a first knitting, for some one who wants to learn. And at the same time a pattern that is a great basic pattern for a more experienced knitter.
I’m planing to make a Simple socks pattern. If there is any other Simple pattern you’d like to see, let me know in the comments.
Vädret är riktigt inspirerande för vant tillverkning, så vant verkstaden verkar ha flyttat in i mitt vardagsrum. Jag har gjort ett mönster för enkla vantar, det är ett bas mönster som går att förändra i oändlighet. Mönstret finns under mönster på svenska. Jag planerar att göra en serie med Enkla mönster som är tillräckligt lätta för att vara nybörjarmönster, det finns än så länge i 3 vuxen storlekar. Just nu består Enkla mönster serien av Handledsvärmare och Vantar, jag planerar Strumpor, om det är något annat plagg du skulle vara intresserad av att se i ett Enkelt mönster, lämna gärna en kommentar.
