The last couple of weeks, I have taken a break from the relentless Christmas gift making, and have made something for myself!
Toni at Woolgasm (Also known as Craftgasm!) has created the most fantastic fingerless glove pattern, and I just had to try it out. The pattern consists of several layers, knitted together, to make one glove (or a pair!).
It’s great for using up scraps, or mini skeins, and it doesn’t even use 100g. I dyed my mini’s to my own colour preferences, and I only had 5, so I had to do a little rejig at the end of the pattern (As the pattern calls for 6). I still have a lot of yarn left, so I will be making a pair for the small person too (this isn’t included in the pattern, but I think I can figure it out).
I have only been knitting for 2 years, and I found this pattern pretty easy. Once I had finished the first, I whizzed through the second.
I also chose to reverse the colours on the second mitt, because I am a fan of odd socks and gloves!
You will need two sets of knitting needles, so don’t get too excited unless you have those! Thankfully, I like to knit several pairs of socks at a time, so I had a few fixed circulars of the same size. The pattern also measures in inches, so keep google open if you are like me and you work in CM!
Toni has plans for other layered patterns, and she is currently working on a hat pattern. She also does some amazing work with brioche knitting, so if you wanted a fancy brioche hat but can’t be bothered making one, check out her Etsy shop, where she sells her finished items.
The Layer Me Up Mitts pattern is available for £1 on Ravelry until Christmas eve, and the discount is automatically applied at the checkout.
