I thought I'd start my blog off this year by releasing a new pattern! Daniela - Spiral Rib Crocheted Fingerless Mitts is now available for purchase from Ravelry. If you're on Ravelry, you can go here. If you're not on Ravelry yet, there is a way you can purchase it too...I just haven't figured that part out yet, but I'm working on it! That's part of why this post is a few days late. I'm having troubles figuring out how to make the linky things work on this blog.
Anyway, here they are...
The pink ones are done in DK weight Naturallycaron.com Spa. The others are done in worsted weight Naturallycaron.com Country. All are nice and squishy, comfy and warm. :D
I consider this an Intermediate level crochet pattern. It requires skills with post stitches, spirals and chainless foundations and is written using US crochet terms.
Included in the pattern are instructions for both DK and worsted weight yarn and a tutorial for the chainless foundation. The pattern is written to fit my hands, which are 7.5” around the palm and 6” around the wrist, because they were the only adult female hands I had available at the time. However, the pattern is adjustable and I have included notes for how to easily re-size them to suit your needs and preferences.
The pattern itself was inspired from last year's Pretty in Pink Swap over in the Village Hopelessly Overcommitted (on Ravelry). None of the patterns I wanted to do for my partner worked out, for various reasons, so I took a shot at designing my own. I loved the result of my very first attempt! I contemplated submitting it for publishing in a magazine, but realized there was no way I could wait till next fall or later to show you, so I decided to make it my first self published pattern available for purchase!
I'm excited about it and I hope you enjoy it as well! :D
