Cute, Cuddly Critters Mittens

With over 6 different "animal face" charts, these chunky-weight mittens (available in 3 sizes) will be a hit with the junior crowd for how fun they are, and with you for their stash-busting effect. Not only that, there is a pattern included for a sewn fleece liner to keep hands extra-toasty in chilly weather.

This pattern was created to raise awareness of the Faith Children Home orphanage project which my husband and I advocate for through Heart4Children Canada. Every time you purchase one of my patterns, you are supporting this cause. However, all proceeds from the sale of this pattern will go towards the orphanage.

 

Graceful Slippers

One of my first designs, these flattering slippers knit up quickly in chunky weight. Short-row shaping and a drawstring bow cause the simple shape to hug the feet, creating a very flattering fit.

View for free on my blog. I will get a PDF version made and posted as soon as I can.

The Mix'n'Match Mermaid Tails and Dragon Scales set is the first installment in a series of interchangeable cable designs for mittens, gloves, and glittens (fingerless gloves with a flip-top.)

Like a "Choose-Your-Own Adventure", this pattern lets you choose among a myriad of design possibilities, all utilizing the same gorgeous "Dragon Scales" cuff cable and "Mermaid Tails" cable on the back.

Sized for wee hands up to a Men's Medium in both aran-weight yarn for the shell and a plain stockinette fingering-weight liner (which you can sew in or use separately), you can mix and match design options for all the special people in your life, and not have to make the exact same thing twice!

Options include: Gloves, Fingerless Gloves, Flip-Top Gloves ("Glittens"), Mittens, Fingerless Mittens, Flip-Top Mittens, and all of these can be lined or unlined. The liner gloves or mittens could also be worn on their own for a light-weight alternative.

Revolution Mittens

4.99

Get noticed in the striking stripes of these cozy 2-Colour Brioche mittens! While the Red and Black of my initial design (reminiscent of the French Revolution) inspired the name, these beautiful mittens would look amazing with many colour combinations.

The two yarns worked throughout are much warmer than plain stockinette mittens, and the long cuff will keep snow out of sleeves. With clear instructions, including photos of brioche stitches and a one-page photo tutorial for Long-Tail Cast On with 2 colours, this is the perfect way to experiment with 2-colour brioche knitting. Cast on at the cuff and work in rib stitch, then switch to brioche stockinette to work the hand, finishing with the thumb.

These are such a fun knit, you might have a hard time making just one pair--but fortunately, with sizes from toddler up to men's, you won't have to!

This is the perfect complement to the Revolution Toque pattern, also available in sizes Infant's to Men's Large in my store.

SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate. You do not have to know how to knit brioche, as it is explained in the pattern.
FORMAT: Adobe PDF File
SIZES: Five sizes, with hand circumferences from 4.5 inches to 10.5 inches
TUTORIALS: A full glossary is included, as well as a photo tutorial for 2-Colour Long-Tail Cast ON. The brioche stitches also have definitions and photos showing what they look like.
SKILLS YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE THIS PATTERN: Knit, purl, make a gauge swatch in Stockinette Stitch.
PATTERN REQUIREMENTS: 1 to 2 50g/3.5 oz (100.6 m/110 yds each) worsted-weight balls each of two contrasting colours of a natural fibre yarn (Brioche does not work well with 100% synthetic fibres; I used "Knit Picks Swish Worsted"); 3.5 mm (US 4) double-pointed needles OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE; yarn needle.
