Pattern on Ravelry: Hither
Designer: Hunter Hammersen
Sizes Included: Written in three sizes and three gauges to fit most anyone, at 6 spi, fits a wrist of about 6.75 [7.25, 8] inches.
About the Pattern: There’s something about knitted leaves. They’re more charming than they have any right to be, and they look impressive but are actually super easy to make. Charming and easy…that’s pretty much what I’m looking for in my knitting! And these mitts totally fit the bill.
The leafy lace runs up your wrist, and splits around your thumb (who says you have to keep all the fancy bits on the back of your cuffs?), and joins back up at the top of your hand. The rest of the cuff, including the gorgeous mirrored thumb, is in lovely crisp ribbing (so it fits great and is easy to work).
The whole thing makes for the sort of mellow, meditative project that’s fun to make and looks absolutely fabulous when you’re done.
Last Note: Fingerless mitts are some of my favorite gift knits… They’re quick, easy to fit, and non-knitters are universally impressed with them!
I hope you’re enjoying Knitting Pattern of the Day as much as I enjoy putting together posts. Thus far, the majority of the patterns featured have been from designers I reached out to, but my hope is to grow the website enough that I get an equal number of submissions from designers I don’t know, so I can discover new patterns, too. To make that happen, this website needs a larger audience, and that’s where you can help! If you’ve liked the project so far, please tell a friend or two. And if a friend sent you here and you want to support KPotD as well, tell two more friends. It might feel small, but if everyone does it, it can have a big affect, and that’s the secret to growing a website like this.
We’ll get back to your regularly scheduled knitting patterns tomorrow.
Knitting Pattern of the Day is a new website featuring the latest designs from indie designers. The knitting scene is bombarded with new designs everyday, and Knitting Pattern of the Day will give you a taste of that by showing off a new pattern every day that was published within the last month.
Designers are welcome to submit starting now, and patterns will begin being shared on August 1st.
