I designed these patterns for the Erika Knight yarn collection in 2012.
Some of you may have made my Zigzag hat pattern, which I released last February. Erika liked the hat and asked me if I would like to design a matching snood and mittens to help promote her Erika Knight Yarn Collection. The pattern was first released in print in the US, UK and Europe, and is available to download through Erika’s website.
The snood and mittens are part of a collection of 20 patterns which were designed in Erika’s new yarns; Vintage Wool, Maxi Wool and Fur Wool. These patterns are all now available to download online, where you can also purchase the yarns.
Both the patterns knitted in Vintage Wool, which is 100% British Wool that Erika sourced herself from Yorkshire. The yarn is fab to work with, it knits up quickly and blocks beautifully.
The snood uses approx 500g of Vintage Yarn and it’s really snug and cosy. It measures 36cm (14.5in) by 43cm (17in) when laid flat, and it’s really stretchy.
The Zigzag Snood and Mitts patterns are available to download from Erika’s website, at £3.00 for the pair.
If you fancy making the matching hat too, you can buy it here
