You’ve finished all the holiday knitting for others, so why not knit a warm, cozy pair of mittens for yourself? The Stitchin’ Den’s January featured project is mittens, gloves, and mitts. If you buy a yarn or a pattern for mittens, you will receive a discount of 10%. This is a good project on which to practice a new technique such as Fair Isle, or use up a small amount of yarn for a pair of fingerless mitts to wear in the office.
Do you need a pattern for your mittens? Come to The Stitchin’ Den. Some sources of new and unique patterns follow. All of these are 10% off the cover price in January.
Knit Simple Winter 2015 features several mittens, including basic, Fair Isle, cabled, and striped. There is a basic mitten workshop that features help with thumbs.
Favorite Mittens: Best Traditional Mitten Patterns from Fox & Geese & Fences is a treasure trove of information. It is a collection of traditional patterns, most from the British Isles and northern Europe. Brief, fascinating, oral histories introduce readers to the patterns. Photographs and multiple sizes of each pattern make this book a great resource for knitters.
Magnificent Mittens & Socks by Anna Zilboorg is a feast for the eyes. Even if you never knit a pattern from this book, you will enjoy it! Many patterns are Turkish in origin and use geometric color patterns and sophisticated colors. Those large mitten cuffs have hooked me! This book could double as a coffee table book, it is that beautiful. And did I say it is 10% off?
Mostly Mittens: Ethnic Knitting Designs from Russia by Charlene Schurch is another source for patterns that offer alternatives to mundane mittens. Color-coded charts for 35 stranded colorwork mittens and 4 hats are included.
Also in the shop are a few models of fingerless mitts, which are all the rage; patterns are available for these easy projects.
Only 14 days to save 10% on patterns and yarn for handwarmers and on any blue yarn!
