With all the new yarns coming in, I like to knit up a sample to help you imagine all that it can be. However, this involves lots of swatching and experimenting and frogging and beginning again.
One evening when I just wanted to finish something, I decided to make these. The yarn is an old favorite (Misti Chunky Alpaca) knit firmly into fingerless mitts. This pair was knit on a size 7 needle for small hands, but you can easily go up to an 8 or 9, to adjust the size. You can find the free pattern here.
So now I’m back to the new yarns. Stay tuned to see what I came up with.
