New Pattern Release: Edith Mitts and Mittens

I’m been beavering away these last few weeks to get this mitten pattern knitted up and photographed to release in time for Christmas. It’s such a quick and simple pattern that it will make a great last minute gift – in just a day or two these can be ready to go!

Knitted in A Stash Addict’s Solid Aran BFL, I used a slightly tighter gauge than normal to keep the warmth inside. The yarn is gorgeous to work with and blocks beautifully.

The pattern includes instructions for both the fingerless mitts and the full mittens, I couldn’t decide which I preferred so I thought I would leave it up to you. The mittens are grafted closed at the top, which is a really neat finish and helps them to keep their shape.

The pattern is available in three sizes, S,M and L. All can be made with under 100g / 3.5oz of yarn per pair.

Pattern Gift Vouchers For Your Knitting Buddies

Just a short post today..

It dawned on me yesterday that it might be nice to offer something for those of you with knitty friends, that want to get a gift but might not know which pattern/s to buy for them. It’s hard to know what sort of thing someone might like to knit, especially if you have no idea what’s in their stash or what their skill level might be.

So I’ve created some gift vouchers, just in time for Christmas 🙂










When you click on a voucher you will be taken to Paypal, and when complete, redirected to a voucher you can print off for your friend or relative.  The voucher contains a code which they can enter at checkout either through Ravelry, or through the knitting patterns page after they find something they like and select “add to cart”.  The free pattern gift voucher costs £3.50 and is valid for all patterns except the Nordic Lace Set, which is a 3 pattern bundle.

These vouchers can also be found in the knitting pattern store.
